    Default A gift from David McNerney

    Congressional Medal of Honor recipient 1st Sgt.. David h. McNerney was awarded the CMOH on March 22 1967. he also graduated high school at my high school Saint Thomas high school. he served 2 tours in Korea and 4 in Vietnam. on Friday night they showed the film Honor in the Valley of Tears. mostly every one there was Vets. it was my and 4 other kids attending saint thomas. I talked to him a lot and he could tell he was not feeling well. I told him how honored i was to met him and how thankful I was to met him. Because he wasnt feeling good he was going to leave 1/2 way through the film but he didnt leave. He answered some questions i asked about his 2 PHs and another guy asked about his dads DSC. I went after the movie and d talked to him some more he told me to wait aside for min. and i went to shake his hand he hesitated then put his hand in his pocket and made sure no one was looking he gave me this coin and now it is my most prized possession. i thank him for his gift and gallantly. I recently found out his wife passed away in 2003 and he has lung cancer and is not expected to make it past september. i hope every one keeps him in there prayers. god bless you Mr.McNerney you truly are an America hero.

    A very moving story, it's just a shame that your shoddy, reverse image photo's don't honour him in any way. I would of hoped that you could do better than this very poor display, afterall, it's not too difficult if you put the effort in that is deserved instead of thinking, 'that'll work!' is it? If you genuinely mean it, get it right. That's the least that can be expected for this man.

    at the end of the day at least your trying if you mess around with your webcam seetings you can get reverse images done its there somewhere i noticed it on your previous post but at least your trying and showing your items rather than keeping them away from the eyes of those who will enjoy them

    hopefully you can keep in touch with this great man though he wont ever deem himself a hero and be a young friend during his last days and let him know you truly respected his service and gallantry its be nice for him i tihkn and obviously he appreciated your words and kindness or he wouldnt have given you such a magnificent gift
