It’s horrible, it’s ghastly, it’s ghoulish, but you see people doing things for each other that they would never ever do in any other circumstance and it is a sight to see, it’ll change your life forever, and I think we’re all better for having seen that love played in combat.” ” PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WILL PRESENT BELLAVIA WITH THE MEDAL OF HONOR THIS AFTERNOON AT 3:30 IN THE EAST ROOM OF THE WHITE HOUSE.
