Re: “Medal of Honor recipient Nick Bacon dies

I met 1SG Nick Bacon in Nov 2007 at a Cub Scout function in Rose Bud. It was a priviledge to get to talk with him for about 45 minutes, and get my picture taken with him. It was such an honor for this retired Navy Chief. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I do plan on being at the cemetary Saturday after plans are announced. I sincerely hope there will be a great turnout with other veterans.
