The ones who received the award know that they received the medal for all the people who died durring battle.
Sammy L. Davis
Sammy L. Davis is the real life Forest Gump( like Mr. Mesh says ) . Though he was badly wounded he still got up, after being shot by a bee hive, and shot at the enemy so the people behind him would have a chance at survival. Later during the Vietnam war Davis heard someone yelling cease fire and he noticed that is was some of his men so he stopped shooting and went to rescue them on a blow up mattress.

Valor means to have a lot of courage in the face of danger, including war. All three men plus woman ( go women !!!) showed valor by risking their lives in the face of danger.
Courage is showing bravery when others cannot. And that is what our recipients did in order to receive such an important award.
Patriotism is showing great love for America. These soldiers made a promise to protect and serve the country. And to this day, they still have; though some recipients have unfortunately passed.
