TWO Heroic Medics - Both Medal of Honor Recipients - Die On the Same Day.

March 23, 2006, proved to be an unusually sad day for those who cherish our rarest heroes, recipients of the Medal of Honor. On the same day, World War II Army Medic Desmond Doss (right) and Korean War Army Medic David Bleak (left) passed away. Both men were the LAST SURVIVING Medal of Honor medics from their respective wars.
