I served in Afghanistan. I saw 81% of my platoon lay down their lives in the fight against terrorism. I spent 81 days as an Al Qaida prisoner of war. I lost two fingers and nearly @GrandpaSankey'd myself everyday after they poured bleach in my eyes.
But I've never seen anything so courageous as your coverage of this recruiting season.
Buy yourselves a beer, take a big fat one in the ass from your favorite position, and enjoy your holidays. You are the real purple hearts.
