    CMH Recipientís Heroic Last Stand

    Quite the warrior, patriot and selfless man.....Video of his actions in the link.

    The U.S. Air Force released video highlights Thursday of a firefight in which Air Force Tech Sgt. John Chapman made a final stand to save the lives of fellow troops on a mountaintop in Afghanistan, an act of bravery that will earn him a posthumous Medal of Honor later in August.

    I saw the huge blurb for this on the very top of the Fox News website this morning.
    What kind of sick bastards would put this on their web page, or on the TV? Think of the family, think of his comrades who left him behind thinking he was dead.

    All the news media are thinking of is ratings greed.

    Trump is right - the media is the enemy of the American people.
    Even Fox News.

    Remember, they presented a video that was released by the Air Force, which is aggressively embracing perversion. With less than four years from retirement from the military and the AF Reserve being my last service, why do you think I separated?

    I do not have a problem with the video being presented to the public, as I am pretty sure that the family ok'd it being released.

    He died like a man, and I only hope that I can do the same, I use stories like this as a paradigm. It blew me away when I read what he did, like this excerpt from the article.

    Despite grievous wounds, he engaged multiple enemy fighters for more than an hour, some in hand-to-hand combat. In his final act, Chapman provided covering fire for an incoming quick reaction force, until he was shot in the chest and killed.

    ​RIP.

    1. I have started reading Thucydides, The History of The Peloponnesian Wars. It looks like it will be a tough read; it is very intelligently written, and it is the kind of book that used to be required reading in college.
    2. Should my health remain reasonably good, I will teach myself advanced algebra; and then test out of it at Saint Petersburg College. I will get those credits by self-study, and it is doable.

    You do not have one stinkin' clue about combat, do you?

    Who were you with? What unit? When?

    He stated in another post that he's a vet. REALLY? Could the military be that desperate?
