Here is the story of the heroic service of Capt. Lance Peter Sijan, as recounted by the United States Air Force.

He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for his heroism during the Vietnam War, where he died as a prisoner of the North Vietnamese. He displayed this strength of character not just at one particular time of great danger, but consistently throughout a long ordeal.

The USAF website noted the Irish heritage of Capt. Sijan’s mother, but not the Serbian heritage of his father. Capt. Sijan’s Wikipedia biography does mention this.

Capt. Sijan was not the only Serbian-American awarded the Medal of Honor. Reportedly, a greater proportion of Serbian-Americans per capita have been awarded the Medal of Honor than any other ethnic group serving in the U.S. military.

Sadly, credit is not being given where credit is due. Not long ago, the U.S. was at war with Serbia, for reasons that did not prove justifiable in retrospect – which is why the mainstream media has so little to say about the Balkans at present. Even now, the U.S. State Department is still trying to detach Kosovo from Serbia to turn it over to jihadist rule, and to sell out the Bosnian Serbs as well, in defiance of all common sense. Encouraging the public to admire a Serbian-American hero would no doubt raise too many embarrassing questions about past and present foreign policy mistakes, and about those bureaucrats, journalists, and elected officials who are clearly to blame.

Beware of John McCain!

Kosovo: Foreign Policy Litmus Test for US Presidential Candidates

(R) Senator John McCain who made his name nationally known by advocating the 1999 NATO Bombing, and the empowerment of radical Islamofascists in the Balkans. Back in 1999, McCain even advocated the we send American troops into Kosovo on behalf of the secessionist drug-running KLA. McCain has consistently been on the Albanian American Civic League’s payroll and even marched with them a year after the NATO intervention.

McCain doesn’t mention that while he was a POW he shared a cell with US Captain, Congressional Medal of Honor winner & proud Serb-American Lance Sijan for whom the Air Force created the Lance P. Sijan Award. If Sijan were alive today, he wouldn’t spit on the better part of John McCain. McCain receives 47% of his campaign donations from $2,300 or more contributors. McCain is a conservative Republican and aggressive interventionist.
