Regardless if he does, it's against the law to do something like that, to slander someone.

As for O-cha, I still don't think I misunderstood what you said and still feel as if your comment is taking away from the honor of the recent living Medal of Honor recipients. I don't feel I am some self righteous guy that deserves credit because I was deployed, I joined the Army during the War and knew what I was getting myself into. But when I see people die in front of me, as opposed to you seeing it in movies, I probably tend to react a bit different then you would if you feel you were disgracing a soldier's honor. Sorry for "jumping the handle" or whatever, but I said what I felt.
This is a private company.... of course they are in it for the money, and nothing wrong with that at all...

the defense industry is like any other industry.... the bottom line matters....

yeah...so true.

gone are the days of the WW II era, were Americans were united for the "cause" and it wasn't about profits (though i'm sure industries made a lot of money), it was about defending our nation after Pearl Harbor and Europe from the Nazis. Where doing the right thing included having corporate responsibility for the benefit of America and its national security, and not selling weapons to those that would use it against us.

While he was repeatedly denied into going in to help and assist his comrades, he took the initiative, and rescued his fellow service members. Is it not honorable to fight back, against all odds, for your fellow service member? To go in and retrieve his fellow fallen Marines? You never leave a fallen soldier behind.

If you haven't been in the military, in combat, I wouldn't expect you to understand.
