The event last Friday was to celebrate the new Medal of Honor stamps coming out this week.

 

93 year old Bob Maxwell of Bend is one of eight World War Two Medal of Honor recipients still living.

 

A crowded Bend High library served as a celebration for the man who threw himself on a grenade in 1944 -- to save his fellow soldiers.

 

"Well, i just can'y get over all the hub bub and crowds and picture taking.  But someone has to do it.  It goes with the medal."

 

Maxwell feels his life was sprared "by divine providence" and has devoted the latter part of his life to working for veterans.
