This week in the military, after 50 years, four veterans received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions during the Vietnam War; the Department of Justice launched an investigation into “Operation Lone Star,” the controversial Texas border mission, for “alleged civil rights violations, according to ProPublica; the Army cut off more than 60,000 soldiers from pay and benefits for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine; Russian President Vladimir Putin told Russian parliament leaders that Russia hasn’t “started anything in earnest” in Ukraine yet amid the Kremlin’s renewed invasion into the country; and the last member of Easy Company, the unit portrayed in “Band of Brothers,” died Sunday. Bradford Freeman, a mortarman with E Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, who dropped into Normandy on D-Day 78 years ago, was 97 when he died.
