Transcript of Mahsa Iranipour
Michael J. Crescenz
Michael J. Crescenz was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 14, 1949. In 1962, he graduated from At. Athanasius School. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in February 1968 then shipped out to Vietnam in that September. He received the Medal of Honor for his actions near the Hiep Duc village of Vietnam on November 20, 1968. Unfortunately, Crescenz died on November 20th, 1968 at age 19. He was killed in action near Hiep Duc, Vietnam.
Citizenship and Patriotism
Crescenz must have loved our country to go out their and risk his life. He's has shown his rights and duties of being a true American.His strong patriotism shows us that he can be a brave, heroic man even if he's 19 years old.
I believe that being an American is more than just living in the United States. It's about appreciating our military. We probably have the strongest military in the world. They risk their lives for us. Some live with serious injuries and some don't live at all. We have to honor all those military people and let them know we respect them for what they do.
Honor and Courage
Crescenz has gotten the Medal of Honor for a reason. He won it because of his bravery and fearlessness towards the Vietnam War. He deserves pride, joy, and pleasure from all of us Americans. If no one gives him that, them he just went our there and got killed for no reason at all.
