Copperas Cove man to give president his Purple Heart

http://www.kdhnews.com/news/story.aspx?id=15367


This is just funny. This guy is going to give George Bush Jr. his purple heart because of the "the verbal attacks, both foreign and domestic, the commander in chief has withstood during his time in office".

the guy took a .50 cal round, shattering his shoulder and obliterating his lung and he's giving his purple heart to G-dub because he's an idiot and people call him out on it.

:tonka: :tonka: :tonka: :tonka:

weird.

I believe this is representative of what separates some of the anti-war people from the supporters. This is one man's gesture to our President that he believes in what he's fighting for and that Jr. is taking a shitton of heat for sending troops to the middle east.

Personally, I think it is pretty impressive; you find it as another reason to make fun of our President.

x2

The way Sova posted it would mean this guy would be making a mockery of the award and those that have been awarded it, which clearly isn't the case.

WTF does your opinion of the president have anything to do with the gesture this young soldier is trying to make?

I just think it's funny that this guy thinks bush jr. is more deserving of the medal than he himself.

I don't. Our Armed Forces have put their asses in the line of fire for our country and others for many years.

But its not YOUR decision to make. So what you are once again really saying is that you think you know better than someone who's actually served his country and been severly wounded on the subject of purple hearts.

I read what you wrote, but you misunderstood what I wrote.

More clearly (I hope )
People in our armed forces are accustomed to putting others before themselves. I can see where he offers his award to the President as a gesture of his appreciation.
