Medal of Honor
In my print column in the Coeur d'Alene Press there's more about these two very special North Idaho residents, Vernon Baker and Tom Norris. Coeur d'Alene was the birth place of perhaps one of the most famous Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, Gregory "Pappy" Boyington. But to have two of fewer than 100 surviving Medal of Honor recipients from WWII and Vietnam living in North Idaho is quite an honor for us all.
