Congressional Medal of Honor winners are soldiers who served the United Stated with extreme distinction and valor. The CMH is the highest honor in the US.
I know what the CMH is, Mike. All I wanted to know was whether the term you used, "Soldiers of Valor," was a term of art of some kind. Apparently it's not, in which case I stand by my position.
The rest of the sermon is your opinion. Mine is based on my belief that actions speak louder than words, and that the real action of appointing General Shinseki to put things right at Vets Affairs after the horrendous stewardship of the past Administration is a far more important act of support for veterans than 15 minutes of attendance at some Inaugural Ball, and that the hype over the Ball is just that. Hype.
