Take a moment to read about a genuine American hero.

Sadly, the general media is ignoring the story, since it doesn't fit their olitical agenda. Snachez, the retired general joining in the antiwar cry, has pushed this story off the presses.

That's true, but I didn't want to politicize this. Just a pure tribute.

Fair winds, and following seas, shipmate.

I read Lone Survivor last month, Marcus Luttrel’s story of the mission and how it went terribly wrong. It is an important and sad story of lost friends and courage. It is an important book.

God bless.

For the many that serve and the precious few that never return. May God bless them all and have those that live in peace and safety honor them as the heroes they truly are.

Thanks for that note Richmond. I'll look for the book. The heroism is genuine, but I do question the tactical choices made higher up the chain. I question them very much. But that's best left for other threads.

Read Lone Survivor and you will believe that every member of that SEAL team deserves the MoH.
