Robert Howard died in 2009. He was the only person ever nominated for the Medal of Honor 3 times! You can only win that award once in a lifetime. Bob earned 8 Purple Hearts and numerous other awards - probably the most decorated American ever.
They don't make them like this anymore.
NBC's Brian Williams tells more about this American hero in this brief video after Bob Howard died of cancer last year.
RIP Colonel Howard and thank you
