Charles Albert Poland Jr., 66, of Newton Alabama, gave his life to protect the lives of the children on his school bus. When a crazed gunman boarded the bus Poland blocked his way, and was shot several times fatally wounding him. With our first priority as a Nation is to protect our children, we believe Mr. Poland justly deserves the highest civilian honor that our government bestows.
