The War against those who perpetrated the killing of our citizens has no honor? This man served well, he refused to let a fellow soldier to be left behind, he knew the risks of recovering the soldier and accepted them with hesitation. I would think the parents and loved ones of the soldier he gave his life to recover would care. What this Sergeant did was honorable; your dispersion however shows no honor.

Like the wars or not, how Obama is administering them or not, admire & respect anyone that volunteers to go where you won't and protect you, even to the point of giving their own life.

All volunteer military? It gives the looney-libs one less thing to complain about.

Considering the lack of a draft, the force is not conscripted. The military depends on volunteers and recruited individuals. How would you describe the force if not volunteer?

9/11/01 was just US Karma coming back to haunt it.

Remember the USA is a nation of professional SNEAK bombers.

Idiot americans spend 2.5 billion per B2 Stealth bomber.....the terrorists just buy boxcutters and use the momentum of hate the world has for the IDIOTS in the USA.

Now we are wallowing in a trap.....totally defeated with ZERO chance of winning anything in the mideast.

It will be another Quagmire for a sick idiotic nation...the USA.

The "World's Greatest Superpower" defeated by its own blunders and AlQueda...LMAO.

What lies will we use to diguise our defeat....stay tuned....they should be some good ones!

So, big man, you have done what that is worthy of this honor? Nothing is my guess.

before you slander the Sgt, you need to jock up and face shoot some smelly bearded trash.

Only then will you have earned the right to critisize.
