Given enough time 99.9% of people will be forgotten. Let's keep it simple, how many Congressional Medal of Honor winners can you name? After all there has been close to 3,500 people who have been awarded the medal of honor. Personally I can only think of two Audie Murphy, and Pappy Boyington. Now go back even father to roman times and how many people can you name that were awarded the corona obsidionalis or corona graminea (Grass Crown). Me 0.
So live a long life have fun smell the flowers, odds are you're going to be forgotten.
