OT - Brave Marine story

Not sure if this has been posted here or not. Worth repeating in my opinion.

Repeated?

Heck, it should be mandatory reading/watching/telling in every Jr. High, Middle School and Sr. High in the USA!

He should have been awarded the MOH.

Re: OT - Brave Marine story

It has been posted before, but I welcome it again.

As long as it doesn't start another rant session.

Scott, calling another board member a freak is over the line. Remember, we're all being nice now. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Sorry Jim

Actually I wouldn't ignore Taz.... He's the humor in my day [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] That and my daily posting of Calvin and Hobbes and FoxTrot on my Google home page.

Re: OT - Brave Marine story

Nice comparison Brent, you have a unique sense of humor. You must really enjoy the kid in the playground screaming at the top of his lungs that no one want's to play with him.

Re: OT - Brave Marine story

I hadn't seen it before. and see nothing wrong with posting it again. I think it would be a better story if it wasn't being used as an attack on the Media. But seeing who wrote it, Bob Lonsberry, one wouldn't expect anything else. Having been fired from several TV stations I see it as a grudge thing. Too bad he chose to exploit a true hero in the process. What the Media does or does not cover in the evening news is controled by ratings and the apparent "enquirer" mentality of the general public. It's simply supply and demand, capitalism at work. Exactly what the good Captain is, or was fighting for. The American Way!
