Folks often forget the ferocity of war, that there are men like him sacrificing so much, almost on a daily basis... such sefless men are at the pinnacle of excellence.

Here's an inspiring photograph and story we recently received:

Marine 1st Sergeant Brad Kasal (in the middle). This photo is from the most recent major offensive in Fallujah. 1stSgt. Kasal sacrificed his own safety to save a room full of fellow Marines. He ended up taking several AK rounds in the leg. Most of his lower leg was blown away but you can't tell it from this pic. He took rounds in the back which his armor saved him from. He took one round through his butt which passed through both cheeks leaving 4 holes in him. And he also took the brunt of a grenade blast. He jumped on top of a younger Marine to cover him from the fire. He killed the terrorist who did most of the damage to him and his men, and despite a massive loss of blood he never stopped fighting. Notice that he's still holding his pistol. He has been put in for the Medal of Honor for his actions on that day. He already has several Purple Hearts for previous battles throughout his career and he has turned some down so that he could stay with his unit. While in the hospital he has met President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and several other celebrities. He said that Bush came in by himself and had a very long, sincere, and friendly visit with him.

God Bless him! :rambo:
That is an amazing story and it's wonderful to know that there are people in our armed forces with that much courage and determination. God Bless the USMC and all of the other branches.

"God Bless the USMC and all of the other branches."

Heh, i have wondered about what if God was on another side?

Or takes he any side at all? I heard bible denies service in any armed service, which is one main reason why Jehovah's wittnesses don't serve in any army for example.

First Shirt usually isn't a kid, probably more than likely 03, Sooners. and my age.....

Either way, Semper Fi First Sgt, way to show them even an old Marine isn't something to mess with.....
