Nation's Oldest Medal Of Honor Hero Dies In Hospital With Dozens Of Veterans At His Side

Nicholas Oresko of Cresskill, the nation’s oldest Medal of Honor recipient, died Friday evening, surrounded by veterans and military personnel who had gathered there all week after hearing on social media that he was in the hospital with a broken leg.

Oresko, 96, was a U.S. Army master sergeant during World War II when, although badly wounded, he wiped out two enemy bunkers near Tettingen, Germany, during the Battle of the Bulge.

Black Hawk Down

October, 3, 2013 is the sad 20th anniversary of the deaths of Master Sergeant Gary Ivan Gordon (August 30, 1960 – October 3, 1993) and Sergeant First Class Randall David Shughart (August 13, 1958–October 3, 1993) in Mogadishu, Somalia. This pair of Delta Force snipers were both posthumous recipients of the Medal of Honor. They heroically asked to be inserted to rescue Warrant Officer Michael Durant, knowing well that their chances of survival were incredibly slim. Together, they accounted for at least 25 Somali KIAs before they died.

Help a Veteran!

I am sorry to bother the veterans of this fine country. I am trying to raise money to help my family and I stave off homelessness, pay our utilities and save our only means of transportation. I have tried to get help from local charities, government agencies, etc. Either funds have exhausted or nothing was available to us. My family and friends have helped as much as they could. I have been out of work over 4 years and my wife cannot work. I have nowhere else to turn, except to my fellow veterans. I certainly know many of you are in the same position and I feel for you as well.
