What makes a hero? Is a man born to be remembered through the ages, or is greatness thrust upon him whether he desires it or not? History may little note nor long remember the fight between Florida International and the University of Miami. But we shall never forget the valiant sacrifices of Ned, who threw himself into the fray despite being hobbled by serious injury.
We mentioned it yesterday, but it bears repeating as Veterans Day draws ever closer ... no nation becomes great without individual great deeds. Let us never forget.
More tribute, after the jump.
