a hero and a mule

I have the pleasure of being friends with a hero and a mule, Mr. John George. Mr. John served in the Army during the Vietnam War as a crew chief and gunner on a helicopter gunship. He received the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal, and numerous Air Medals for heroism. He was known as the Mule.

We already knew he was a wonderfully kind and thoughtful person and great friend to the Cuddler and Morning Guy. We did not realize what a hero he and his friends were. One of his comrades, Luis Molinar, was recognized for his bravery by receiving Purple Hearts and Silver Star for his service. Read more about his heroics here. The honors may be forty years over due, but we think it is better late than never. Mr. Molinar asked Mr. John to join him in Phoenix and on stage when he received his awards. Thank you to Mr. Molinar and Mr. John and all of the other brave men and women that serve our country.

Much love to Mr. John.

Love, the Plum
