Is Smith a UU?

Bill Baar said...

His bio is here.

He serverd four deployements: Persian Gulf War, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The Army's Bio is silent on his faith.

I never thought to ask whether SFC Smith was a UU. The Medal of Honor being the highest award given in any of our military branches, i thought the story itself was enough.

I meant it as a show of how we honor those who give thier lives in defense of others.. which is literally what Paul Smith did.

Hope that explains why I reposted it here.

Thanks
