    The man's a marine. He is not performing in a Shakespearian play. However, the good intentions are all that count so I won't hold it against you.

    Guys like that are why I become infuriated when someone labels a person like Snowden a hero. I condone Snowden's actions, but he's not a hero. The Carpenters of this world are heroes.

    John 15:13 King James Version (KJV)

    13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter, I salute you!

    From the Halls of Montezuma,
    To the Shores of Tripoli;
    We fight our country's battles
    In the air, on land, and sea;
    First to fight for right and freedom
    And to keep our honor clean;
    We are proud to claim the title

    Our flag's unfurled to every breeze,
    From dawn to setting sun;
    We have fought in every clime and place
    Where we could take a gun;
    In the snow of far off northern lands
    And in sunny tropic scenes;
    You will find us always on the job --

    Here's health to you and to our Corps
    Which we are proud to serve;
    In many a strife we've fought for life
    And never lost our nerve;
    If the Army and the Navy
    Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
    They will find the streets are guarded

    OOH RAH!!! Soldier!

    John 15:13, or one who would lay down his life to protect his fellow man. A salute to Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter, USMC, and a salute to every other service member who lost his or her life doing the same and was never acknowledged. Taps.

    As a retired veteran I applaud his heroism. Guys like this are special, and the bond among men in the military are the strongest I have ever witnessed. How this administration can cut veterans benefits, while living a lavish lifestyle disgust me to no end. And to have Kyle as a poster boy during his State of the Union address was a slap in the face to all of those in the military. Obama is a back stabbing piece of shit, and all Kyle was to him and his bitch wife was a photo op.

    That is intellectually dishonest of the GOP.

    Paul Ryan, a Republican, drafted the plan with Patty Murray, a Democrat.

    House Republicans overwhelming approved the plan before it even made it to Harry Reid for a vote. The Republicans could have restored the cuts themselves in the House. Instead, they voted for the plan with the cuts to veterans benefits and went home.

    By the way Mad man this is NOT the Marine that was at the SOTU. It was Cory Remsburg, if you could take off your hate-filled blinders for a minute you would know that. But coming from the party of Draft Dodging cowards that you do you probably are not a retired anything.

    @JohnVicky And if you have noticed that many times I have not always voted republican and I will tell you that I gave my congressman Brett Guthrie an earful and told him he would NEVER get my vote ever again because he signed off on it. He had an intern call me and tell me that he didn't know all that was in it. I told them I do not vote for Pelosi wannabes. But getting back to the facts at hand, how can Obama claim to love the military when he cut them? He stood firm on everything else he wanted and even shut down the government but says OK in military reductions and denying veteran benefits? He can't run from what he did and you should be ashamed for sticking up for him on this.

    @JohnVicky You're right I was mistaken on the veteran, but same effect, but if you would like to come to the Fort Knox area I would be glad to show you I am a retired veteran of the US Army, and if you call me coward to my face then we can have it out. Invitations open! Bottom line is Obama hates the military and gun owners, and of course anyone who opposes his lordship.

    @MadAmerican Sorry too far to travel but if you're ever in my neck of the woods, look me up. We call this place "Republican Free" because it is just to dangerous for Republicans to visit/live here, they are such cowards don't you know.

    My Marine brother, who his chose to save a prime example of uncommon valor as a common virtue. A deserving commendation if ever there was one.

    With the profuse use of the word hero lately, I can finally say here is someone who is truly fitting and deserving of the word.

    Wonderful American Hero!!! So thankful for the 'best of the best'. The Wounded Warrior Project is a great way to help in some small way. I give every moth and feel privileged to do so little for those who give their ALL. God Bless. Semper FI, you are the best!!!
