The power of stories and what we read is real.

CW4 Michael Durant was asked to deliver Gary Gordon’s posthumous Medal of Honor to his parents.

But Durant didn’t realize he was supposed to give a public speech. So when he arrived at Gary Gordon’s hometown, he went to the library and looked at the only book they had on the Medal of Honor to get some ideas.

He read through page after page of stories of soldiers who risked their lives for others. When he got to the end, he noticed the book had a back pocket with a card from the old, pre-digital checkout system.

The last person who had checked out the book, years earlier, was a teenager named Gary Gordon.

That’s the power of stories.
