Hi
....I just received a letter from Graham Avera Bob's Co. Commander...He has recommended Bob for the Medal of Honor. I have heard from Colonel Ingram and from General Kinnard and they are willing to endorse it...This is a real military recommendation not one from Bob's sister...Frank Rowe at Senator Lieberman's office says I have a much better chance this way than my way.. I am so excited. This doesn't mean I will get it. I just have a better chance...Graham wrote a beautiful recommendation. He also wrote something I didn't know and that was that the machine-gun that took my brother's life was enabling the 3rd Platoon to target where the enemy were and to kill them before they (the 3rd) lost anymore people....I am ready to cry... This is the biggest break yet....
