Now, this spectacular Vietnam War battlefield rescue will be memorialized in bronze. Saturday, officials will dedicate a 10-foot statue depicting Thornton carrying Norris on his shoulders during the facility’s 28th annual Muster reunion at the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Fla. “It was the only time this century when one Medal of Honor winner was rescued by a person who would eventually get a Medal of Honor for rescuing him,” said Rick Kaiser, executive director of the museum. . . .

All these hero's should be cast in bronze for the youth to see what real men did under horrific conditions and life threatening situations. One of my old friends was a Seal and when we both returned from Nam, he was a difficult man to deal with but a good one. He died in a bar fight, he was a rough dude but he met his match. He would cover your back in tough times and drink you under the table. Those guys were a rare breed. cwy
