Hooah!!! Snakes*** to Receive Medal of Honor

02/24/2007: Anyone who has seen We Were Soldiers, or read the book We Were Soldiers Once…and Young, will appreciate the heroics of Maj. Bruce Crandall–whose call sign was Snakeshit–the helicopter pilot who flew in the ammo, and got the wounded and dead out of Ia Drang, in a very hot combat zone.

He will receive the Medal of Honor.
