<quoted text>James is truly a wonderful father, husband, and friend. I can not imagine him doing any of the stuff he is being accused of. He deserves any and all recognitions he receives. New Haven should be honoured to have him as a citizen. I personally know him, his wife, and their children, and they are all wonderful people. I know James would give anyone the shirt off of his back. And his wife, Heather, is a sweetheart and would do anything for anyone. Leave these good people alone and find something to occupy your time other than bashing people on the Internet.
Thank You Soooo Much For your Kind Words. YES, you are right we would. And I Pray the Person saying these Awful Rumors take back their Awful Words & come Visit us one day :) Please anyone out there can come Over to our house and see our House & Look ALL around our House to see if we have Stolen Anything!!! That is Horrible someone would say such a LIE! As much Stuff that we have done & been there for others. SHAME ON YOU. I Pray you find Peace & Happiness :) God Bless You.

Thats funny Neighborhood watch especially since this is all volunteer work and he does not get paid a penny for it. its called community and selfless service, try it sometime. I am a veteran and he helped me and many others and I can only guess your neither a veteran nor someone who cares much for helping your fellow man. Tell me what he gained from it and if so why did he do all this for so many years for free and not ask for anything for it? You need to go take your noise and drama someplace else and stop bashing a national hero and the medal of honor society on topix because your envious and dont have the stones to go tell him to his face. So on top of everything else your a wimp too. Have a great day.Neighborhood Cry baby

Dude the way you type I think you worked the chow line at the end dumping trays, I doubt you got more time than me and for sure doubt you ever stepped within a foot of the door of a C-130 so take that envious attitude and arrogance about your VA down the road and talk it to other wanna bes like you! What a loser, you telling me now your Gen Shinseki or something ha your VA what a joke. Dude get over yourself, you come on here slamming someone you donít know and then get mad when the real troopers call you out. No one owes me anything, I get what I get because I earned it jack you got that?! You sure must think your something special coming back with all this MY VA stuff, that shows clearly your immature and have no clue. Now take that sorry Neighborhood watch name off and put out your real title up is it Admiral or General whatever you think you are but you sure donít speak for the majority of veterans and it sure is not YOUR VA! Maybe thatís why you are not being recognized and rewarded because of your rotten attitude and arrogance, its obvious your jealous dude you can almost hear the whining in your typing.ď Why didnít I get an awardĒ Waaaaa, Waaaa, Im going to go and try and discredit this guy who got it waaa waaa sniff sniff because I would never come out and put my name on it I will hide behind my little fake nameÖPoor Baby, itís going to be ok, and if you grow up and start doing something besides serving yourself maybe you will get a pat on the back someday and make up for all the lost opportunities and chances you had to step up but instead stepped down. I wonder if you ever even served?? Maybe if you had served someplace hard you wouldnít be so dishonorable and petty. Guys like you are the reason veterans donít use the services they have earned, I bet you work for veterans in some form or fashion as your envious attitude over a medal reveals you, I bet your one of the same guys who spout out against our recent medal of Honor winners too saying they didnít deserve it and how you deserve it more and I am sure that same idiotic and arrogant attitude bleeds out when youíre working with veterans, they see it and I can bet your records will show some big gaps in who you help and who you donít help and I am betting you drive more veterans away from services and benefits they earned than you help. Go look at yourself and get your head right dude, you canít help anyone doing what youíre doing now.

And here we have a guy who puts his name on it and busts your chops for being an idiot and this is all you can come back with? Neighborhood watch that sounds like something a 10 year old would say. Grow up and get a life, stop being so mad over a medal dude, gosh we should be happy someone from our state is being recognized for helping veterans like this and try to be better people ourselves. Get your snout out of the bottle man and your head out of the clouds because man your looking like a sore looser and someone who is just being a baby over a medal you didnt earn. Just saying?! It really looks like that to me and others who have read it.

You call yourself brave yet you hide like a bitch on this topix site trying to discredit a guy who really did go to combat and really did do some good stuff both in the IZ and stateside. Now you want me well thats good because I like little bitches like you, I was an 11 bang bang, pulling hard time got the CIB with a star and have a DD 214 to confirm it. How about you sugar baby? I think since you know about the MWR tent and talk about keeping bad guys off my ass means you pulled guard duty at a FOB yea a real live FOBBIT! real tough in that guard tower or eating that hot chow day in and day out while some of us had to go outside the gate to face Hadji day in and day out, busting his ass with M240 and M203 while you sat in that tower or at the gate asking people to open their bags and drop their pants so you can look up their ass for contraband and I am thinking you looked for something else too, like a real mans balls which you dont have except maybe in your mouth?..You never did anything except tell lies and kill flies punk..Go home and smoke some more weed and go back to your government job stamping papers and screwing over more veterans because your jelous of them. I hope you get caught doing this on your work computer and they send you back to the unemployment line.

Wow..very well said!!!! I don't know Josh but I do know James and he and his family are wonderful people. Thanks for this post!!! All military personnel deserve to be recognized for serving, regardless of what they did and continue to do.....I admire each and everyone of them for making our country what it is today....anyone that bashes anyone in the military has serious issues!!!!! Thanks again for the great post above!!!!!

i'm a seven year marine corps vet three of which i spent in combat till i was wounded by an IED. i earned my VA check and yet i work everyday. you neighborhood watch i think is not i repeat IS NOT a veteran i have meet and come in contact with thousands of veterans and have never meet on who talks down to vets like you. you son are a libral piece of crap. you wouldn't make a good pile of spit to shine one of these guys boots. your not fooling anyone here. its ok to be scared lots of people are afraid to fight in combat. thats why we are proud to do it for our fellow americans. but a simple thank you would be enough. and if you are supporting a 100% disabled vet i think thats the least you can do for a man who was willing to die for you and your family. everyone dies in combat boy, some of us are just unlucky and come home. GOD BLESS MY FELLOW VETERANS
