    Picks up one grenade and throws it back. Picks up another and it blows off his hand. Ties a tourniquet around the stump and continues to fight.

    Fuckin a..

    Just watched the award ceremony.

    Man..this guy is a true hero.

    Hard to believe that after surviving the lose of his hand and some pretty terrible wounds he kept going.

    This really speaks to the grit of Americans.

    Gotta love it.

    I wish we could extend that courage to the rest of our country. Do we care whether he voted for Obama? No. Or whether he's a registered Republican? No. We care only that he represents all that Americans can be. He is a real hero, not one who sits safely in an office, or carries a banner for one 'side' or the other... he recognizes one country.... our country.

    He is the very best of us. And we are not fit to shine his shoes.... although I would be honored to do so.

    The guy's a hero.

    Simple as that.

    I appreciate anyone that gives his all for this country.

    Or does his very best to save people's lives.

    Medal of Honor well deserved. Too bad lefties want to turn it into a political issue.

    Um..where do you see that?


    I was extremely impressed with the man's valor, honor and courage.

    Nothing political about that.
