    He was born into a world at war. He resides now in a kingdom at peace. He prepares for the last and final battle with joy in his heart, for he knows the coming battle will be won.

    I saw that on the East Coast news feed.

    All I can offer is a Semper Fi and respect for the MOH and Purple Hart he earned (I hate when people refer to the MOH as being some honor that the individual competed for = our stupid and current media idiots as well as the current Dude in the WH = no clue!).

    God Speed! May he always have Fair Winds and Following Seas..................and my respect'!
