    Here’s an inspiring story you’re not liable to hear from mainstream media outlets like CBS’s 60 Minutes II, which spend too much time maligning the Bush administration and broadcasting the complaints of a handful of soldiers to bother focusing on the widespread heroism of America’s bravest patriots.

    Meet Marine 1st Sergeant Brad Kasal (in the middle). This photo was taken of 1stSgt. Kasal, whose older brother is a former 82nd Airborne paratrooper serving in Iraq, after the most recent major offensive in Fallujah. 1stSgt. Kasal sacrificed his own safety to save a room full of fellow Marines. Thought it is hard to see from the photograph, 1stSgt. Kasal lost most of his lower right leg after taking several AK rounds.

    During the encounter, 1stSgt. Kasal took rounds in the back, which were rendered virtually harmless due to his vest armor. However, he took one round through his buttocks, which passed through both cheeks, leaving four holes in him. And amazingly, he also took the brunt of a grenade blast after jumping on top of one of his younger Marine brothers to shield him from the fire.

    1stSgt. Kasal killed the terrorist who did most of the damage to him and his men, and despite a massive loss of blood he never stopped fighting. Notice he is still holding his pistol.

    1stSgt. Kasal, who has been recommended for a Medal of Honor for his heroism that day, is already the recipient of several Purple Hearts for previous battles throughout his career, and has turned down more so he could remain with his unit. While in the hospital, 1stSgt. Kasal has met President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and several other celebrities. He said that Bush came in by himself and had a very long, sincere, and friendly visit with him.

    Ya know, as inconceivable and ludicrous as it seems, try comparing the good ol First Shirt to Michael Moore then ask yourself which would you rather have by your side at any given time. Which would you rather have to rely on to protect this country and look out for its interests?

    I know which one I would pick.
