God bless these young men and women who put their lives on the line every day fighting for our countries. It's just too bad our leaders have their heads up their a***s and send them to war for all the wrong reasons.

My heart goes out to this brave hero who put his safety and well being below that of his fellow soldiers. He will be rewarded for his bravery by his maker.

I have a tremedous amount of respect for most our soldiers. So many of our politicians, on the other hand, are such sell-out cowards.

Corporal Ricky Furgusson, I admire your grit and loyalty to your troops. My heart goes out to all of the soldiers caught up as pawns in various wars of the world.
It amazes me that after so many thousands of years, we have still have not evolved to the point that we can stop doing this to each other!

When such a sacrifice is made by an individual for his country, they should provide all needs including health care, job, home - whatever is needed for life.
