1st Lt. Bronstom gave to his country the ultimate sacrifice; his life!
The Medal of Honor is the highest form of recognition a soldier can recieve for his service. God bless his Ohana and may Lt. Bronstrom rest in peace.

Title should have included "Hero", as opposed to "victim" because none of them died in vain. Men and women in uniform like 1st Lt. Bronstom are the true Ultimate Fighters.

there is no draft..the people who go into the military do it for the benefits and they basically "play the odds" is a job they have signed up i wish them harm? Heck NO!..but it is reality...people get killed everyday in soo many ways...this is simply another way...was he defending his country...depends on your POV...arguably yes...arguably no...this is not WWI, WWII, or Korea, Vietnam etc..this is ..what it is...these people are not "heroes" is simply their job. The war on terrorism is...something this country is not serious about is a game... thank you

Brostrom, along with all the others who have died in present and past wars ARE HEROES. Nevermind what the other idiots on here say. God Bless.

The trutth from Kailua Kona is a idiot. If I was on the big island I would look for him and kick his a&&. He sounds like a coward and a put$$y.
