Today I had the honor to push the wheelchair of Charles E. “Butch” Joeckel, Jr. (PDF)
From link above:
"Butch lost both of his legs above the knees in a land mine explosion during an engagement with the enemy. He was awarded the Silver Star, Navy Commendation Medal with the combat “V” device, the Purple Heart and other meritorious awards for action in Vietnam."
Today was a good day.
