..."“Unable to obtain artillery support to repel the sixth enemy assault, 1st Lt. Puckett and his command were overrun by the enemy. Two mortar rounds detonated in 1st Lt. Puckett’s foxhole inflicting severe wounds to his feet, buttocks, and left arm.”

Puckett was originally presented with the Distinguished Service Cross before being upgraded to the Medal of Honor.

“The Association of the United States Army celebrates their valor with the Medal of Honor graphic novel series,” according to a release from AUSA.

“These full-color digital books are created by a talented team of professionals drawn from the world of comic book industry, and the details are vetted by professional historians. Each eight-page issue profiles a true American hero, bringing to life the daring deeds that distinguished themselves by gallantry in action ‘above and beyond the call of duty.’”

In October 2018, AUSA released its first edition of “Medal of Honor: Alvin York.”

“To date, a dozen issues have been published, commemorating such heroes as Audie Murphy, Mary Walker, Daniel Inouye, Henry Johnson, and Roy Benavidez,” the release added."

I had the honor of meeting Senator Inouye back in 1987 when I was guest-lecturing during my TDY from Kadena (Okinawa) for PACAF Professional Military Education at Bellows Air Force Station just north of Waimalano. What a nice guy he was--soft spoken, direct eye contact, a fun sense of humour, and like all who'd walked in the face of violence as he did, he was totally unassuming, kind, and impactful.
One of my best TDYs ever!
