Patriotism-a strong love for ones country.
Way before the war started he showed a great act of patriotism, he thought that the safety of his country was more important than his. Now, after the war and after being awarded the medal of honor he was told by his commander " that medal dose not belong to you, it belongs to all the marines that didn't get to go home. Dont do anything to tarnish that medal" He nodded his head and proudly agreed.
Valor- courage in the face of danger.
After he was awarded the medal he thought back to himself and realized the great danger he was in, but he didn't care, he thought about the great thing he had done for his country. Evan if he didn't remember how he made way for his brother by taking out SEVERAL pill boxes in 4 hours.
