A picture of Medal of Honor recipient Kyle Carpenter (jumped on a grenade to save fellow marines) with his mother. After everything he’s been through, he’s still her little boy.
Medal of Honor recipients have a slew of privileges and courtesies, including additional allowances, air travel as they see fit, automatic admission of their children to any Military Academy, invitations to all future presidential inaugurations and inaugural balls.
What’s more, members of the uniformed services will render salutes to Medal of Honor recipients without regard to rank or status. A four star general or admiral, they could be chief of staff of their branch, or in charge of an entire command, but they will salute Corporal Carpenter.
That is respect.
