Wars bring out the worst in people, but sometimes they also bring out the best in people. Going above and beyond is not just about standing your ground or killing a lot of enemy soldiers; sometimes it is about going above and beyond what it means to be a soldier in combat and putting your humanity before your duty. Tonight, we talk about Richard Rowland Kirkland, a man who put his human need to help people above his fear of being killed earning him the nickname "The Angel of Marye's Heights".
