    Ty Woods deserves a post-humous Medal of Honor, but it will not happen if Obama wins re-election. Can you imagine how bad Barry would look?

    You're a bit of a low-life.

    What a twisted way to put it!

    Yes he got killed because he thought it was his moral duty to saved the Ambassador, even if he had to risk his own life.... and yes, he deserves a Medal of Honor!

    Shit happens...

    In Medal of Honor battle, senior officers failed – CNN Security Clearance - CNN.com Blogs

    Meyer, who was posted behind the main patrol, asked permission four times to go into the middle of the ambush and help get his team out, but headquarters denied each request.

    Finally, Meyer disobeyed orders and got in a Humvee with another Marine, Staff Sg. Juan Rodriguez-Chavez, to go to the troops' rescue.

    I have to disagree, he was not serving in a milityary capacity, he should get an equivalent civilian award, if there's not not one it should be created by congress.

    It's the guy that disobeyed orders, helped save 6 lives and was killed after returning to his original duty station, while trying to protect others. Any more dumb questions?
