    This is the type of guy who I would always want at my side. I am amazed that he was able to make Special Forces at the age of 24. RIP. This is what the Spartans would call "A beautiful death".

    Wow! :shock: That guy is a true hero. I know that word gets thrown out a lot lately, but geeze man. If there has ever been a hero, that is one of them.

    You're right about the Spartan's "beautiful death." :spartan: That guy was a real warrior.

    "Do not grieve that such men die. Instead rejoice that they lived at all."


    And don't call him a hero. That's an insult to man like that. Call him a SOLDIER...

    It's a shame the family of this Hero must receive the award from a man who hates the country this brave soldier served so well.

    The MOH is a reflection on who this soldier was. Who the president is or is not does not in any way diminish how this soldier will be remembered or the honor bestowed upon his family.
