I find it difficult to praise people for their past performance, once they are dead.

Why didn't someone speak up when they were alive?

It looked to me like someone spoke up.

In 2015, Peppard was one of 14 Canadians who received the highest civilian honour awarded in U.S. — the Congressional Gold Medal, for his time with the Devil's Brigade.
