Last Monday, President Bush presented LTC Bruce Crandall with the Medal Of Honor for his bravery at Landing Zone X-RAY back in November 1965.

Radio Patriots has the details of Friday's interview.
Here's the President's words to Crandall as he presented him with the MOH.
And YouTube will tell the rest of the story. (Voiceover by Sgt-Major Basil Plumley--Sam Elliot of "We Were Soldiers." Perfect.
