1sgt Maximo Yabes A REAL HERO

After reading the Citation for your Medal of Honor, about the only thing left to say, probably said best in John 15:13,

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Maximo Yabes

He was a friend and one hell of a soldier. He was a Medal Of Honor recipient, some people call it the Congressional Medal of Honor, that is a misnomer. The Medal Of Honor is our nations highest honor.

Remembering a friend who served with my husband:

I well remember many evenings we shared together, your family and my family while stationed in Germany for three years From 1956-1959. My husband, Wilbur T. Dunlap also lost his life in Vietnam in 1963. Sgt. Yabes was a fine soldier. Your memory will live on.
