When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

One of the last true Combat Masters......I had the pleasure of meeting him once, he was a very gracious and humble man.

Sad to hear that, especially since it happened in April
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
