Big deal!
A murdering grunt gets slightly injured and receives a shiny medal. Well who, apart from his close family, gives a toss?
Maybe next time he'll get his head blown off by the Iraqi patriots and enable the cretins to say: he was a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
Sounds so much better than just another evil jerk who had it coming.
