An Example of What Made America Great as a Nation ...

This reminds me of the tremendous achdus and caring of ordinary Americans after 9/11

"Army Ranger’s salute ‘seen around the world’

"An Army Ranger wife, Taylor Hargis knew the kind of man she married. But when she posted a photo of her husband on Facebook, it went viral — and the world learned about Rangers, too.

"The photo shows Cpl. Josh Hargis lying on a hospital bed in Afghanistan with his eyes shut and tubes sticking out all over his body. But the most telling thing it shows is this Ranger struggling to raise his hand to ­salute his commander, when everyone in the room thought him unconscious.

"Cpl. Hargis was wounded this month during a Ranger operation aimed at catching a high-value terrorist target in Afghanistan. When the troops arrived at a home, a man came out and lifted his shirt to show the Rangers he wasn’t wearing a suicide vest. When several Rangers came forward, a woman with a suicide vest exited the house and blew herself up. Thirteen other improvised devices exploded, killing four of our people and injuring more."

Full article at the New York Post. This paper wrote the article "to salute Cpl. Hargis — and all those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe at home."

One commentator had this to say: The whole of Congress - Democrats, Republicans, Senators, Representatives - every last one of them ALL TOGETHER - PLUS this President and his entire Cabinet - have not the integrity, the valor, the courage, the love of country, that Cpl. Josh Hargis has all by himself. RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!!

To me it is so sad to see these good men sacrificing their lives, and their families still holding to the principles that once made America a great nation. However, the sadness is in witnessing the disintegration of values and morality, slowing destroying the goodness that was America.


See picture and the article on Glenn Beck's The Blaze THE WOUNDED RANGER’S SALUTE DURING A PURPLE HEART CEREMONY THAT LEFT THE ROOM WEEPING

(just a thought, could he be Jewish?)
