A true Hero!!!

This is dedicated to ALL soldiers who've given their lives in service to this country:

Here's To The Hero's

Here's to the heroes
Those few who dare
Heading for glory
Living a prayer

Here's to the heroes
Who change our lives
Thanks to the heroes
Freedom survives

Here's to the heroes
Who never rest
They are the chosen
We are the blessed

Here's to the heroes
Who aim so high
Here's to the heroes
Who do or die

(Here's to the heros
(Those few who dare
(Heading for glory
(Living a prayer

Here's to the heroes
Who aim so high
Here's to the heroes
Who do or die

Why do you say that? This soldier wanted war he got it...if he would have stayed home the war would not have existed....but no he indulged in evil.

The US is an evil nation...we are not the good guys anymore.

These wars are lost, this soldier wasted his life..case closed...too bad so sad.

Don't blame the soldier, blame the politicians who made it necessary for these HEROS to have to be trained to fight.

Americans are their own worst enemy...their ugly rotten forces infect nations worldwide as we force our ugly rotten beliefs on others.

We are a nation of corpses living on borrowed trillions...yet have the gaul to try to tell others how to live

The flag of the USA is political fantasy. Now go try to sell the lie that our high tech barbarians in uniform are heroic as they kick down doors and intimidate the world.

Oh but you are very happy to hide behind that lie and enjoy your freedoms aren't you?

People like you are gutless cowards who can't step out from behind their computer screens and do something about what you bitch about! Grow a pair of balls and make a change if we're such an evil country.

I'd love to see how fast your sorry a$$ would come running home if you had to endure what half of those brave heroes go through everyday!

And now I'm bored as hell with your moronic and tactless statements! May God bless you and I truly wish you luck that you never need the protection of our troops!

The US has no brave heroes.....just invaders and occupiers in other nations.

We lost the war in Iraq...now just aquestion of time in Afghanistan

Our troops protect nothing......what is heroic about them?

They sould be cut down to 1 meal a day and have to pay for their bullets. Let em eat the corpses of the people they kill..that is your amerikan heroism

The flag and uniform does not disguise the fact that our troops are invaders and terrorists themselves.

The US is a sick nation...and will never control the world with its rotten evil military machine.

What was that soldier doing in Afghanistan????

He was playing Rambo with real bullets.....oh well

I bet that silver star means something to someone that is DEAD!

Americans are in love with WAR, DEATH and heroism as they bomb nation after nation.

He might have well done something heroic...BUT it does not matter because we are losing the war.

This war is all about Pentagon Contractors....not about freedom or anything else.

Pentagon Contractors loved the events of 9/11/01 more than Osama Bin Laden
