Read the rest here: The story of James Alton Gardner - JAMES EDWARDS | JAMES EDWARDSA few days ago business took me to Dyersburg, Tennessee. While there I noticed, tucked away in a little hallway at a government building, a commemorative plaque to a local soldier who died in Vietnam on his 23rd birthday in 1966. His name was James Alton Gardner, a first lieutenant in the Army’s 101st Airborne Division. He won the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroism, which is the U.S. military’s highest decoration. His Medal of Honor citation reads as follows:
"A shocking crime was committed on the unscrupulous initiative of few individuals, with the blessing of more, and amid the passive acquiescence of all." -Publius Cornelius Tacitus
