Who Would You Follow Up That Hill?

Bunker Hill, Trenton, Antietam (Sharpsburg for you southerners), Cold Harbor, Gettysburg, Argonne , Iwo Jima, Midway, Utah Beach, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan should mostly be familiar to you as sites where America found glory while many of its sons and daughters gave their last full measure.

These famous battles could not have been won without dedicated military leaders.  You know the guys who would lead the charge up that hill, up the beach, or across that field.  It always intrigued me about how soldiers follow their leaders even though many know that death awaits.  Medals are often given to those that die or are wounded, but not enough is given to those who simply follow and fight.
