Anyone who has seen or listened to Sean Hannity has heard the phrase “great American.”  But what exactly is a great American?  Hannity seems to refer to anyone who agrees with him as a great American, which may be a little over the top.  Of course, many of these people are good Americans, don’t get me wrong.  However, the term “great” should be reserved for someone who is truly extraordinary.

I had the pleasure of meeting a truly great American while attending the David Horowitz Restoration Weekend in Palm Beach, Florida a couple weeks ago.  After an excellent panel discussion on the political state of Hollywood, I found myself in the hallway talking with a woman and another man.  After a few minutes the woman realized I didn’t know who this man was.  She dropped subtle hints that this man next to me was really something special.

“Hi, I’m Leo Thorsness,” he said and shook my hand.  I still didn’t know who he was and he didn’t seem bothered by it.  In fact, he is so modest the women talking with us had to tell me he was a famous fighter pilot and Medal of Honor recipient.  Then it hit me.  David Horowitz had mentioned him at breakfast…this man is a war hero, spent 6 years in a Vietnamese prison, and survived to tell the tale!
