Good and bad characters in society. Good and bad characters go in the military. Good and bad characters go to war. Good and bad characters get wounded or killed. Some people take the bad things that happen to themselves and turn it around to something positive. Some don't. Some learn,some don't.

That being said, the kid almost died. He suffered horrible wounds, and lost his buddies. A bit of trash talking? I think he has earned that right.

I believe we are all sitting in a country that the soldiers have died, been injured, and seen things that we (Thank God) never will. We are free because of that. I thank our military men and women for all they have sacrificed so we can live our lives.

First off you're just trying to start crap on this vile website, he has NOT been in town for a week! Second, if someone volunteers to defend everyone's freedom during a time of war, in my opinion yes they ARE a hero, especially when 5 of his mates were KILLED, and he will have to live with that for the rest of his life! Third seems like you are doing a little trash talking yourself, and that is fine, because brave soldiers for over 236 years have fought for your freedom so you could do so! I ask you this, are you jealous much?

I partied with him last week lol he's been here getting trashes, America has so many people who are willing to serve for a good cause he was injured in a pointless war big deal how come all the veterans in wf, Benton so forth don't have a "Chaz" day cause it's what they wanted to do and signed up for, not what they had to.
So if someone gets hurt all hail kiss a$$.

Oldman Farmer , let me put it in YOUR words. "i thought people would be more sympathetic toward dissabled,"
When an explosive goes off very close, it screws up the brain. Youth, combined with thetrauma of combat, combined with severe wounds and head injuries, mixed with the craphole environment of West Frankfort,what do you think is going to happen?
Not all injured combat vets will wind up batshit crazy.No one around there can understand let alone relate to the kid.
Either he will straiten up or he wont.
So why don't you just do what farmers do best and bitch about the weather and when the Government is going to bail you out.

Regardless of your feelings about politics, this maneent to another country and fought on the order of the president. He was permanently physically and mentally changed. I say let him party his Sss off. God knows our Vietnam vetsgot no warm welcome and were disrespected. Have we not learner a damnable thing? YOU GO OVER THRRE. See the HORROR. Go without sleep. Sweat until you feel you will die and then freeze a few yous later. Eat sand. Watch your friends die and then try to dissassociate with everyone because you don't want to feel that pain again. WTF has happened to Americans?
