Wanna See a Real Hero??


Cowboy Blob posted this story about a U.S. Marine HERO.

CAMP PENDLETON - He was shot seven times. Then 40 pieces of super-heated shrapnel melted into his flesh.

And at three different moments, in nanoseconds laced with adrenaline, confusion, sweat and blood, Marine Corps 1st Sgt. Bradley Kasal took account of his life.

Then he decided it would be OK if he died.

His decision earned him the Navy Cross on Monday.

OORAH! 1st Sgt Kasal! 1st Sgt has decided that when he is fully recovered he would like to deploy to Iraq again. Dang.

I saw the same article, and had the same reaction.

I was emailing it to a Hollywood friend of mine, and I put "Where do we find such men?" as the Subject.

Then, as I often do, I changed it in the email to "We don't find them. They just show up."

yeah, they volunteer!! This really touched me...the dude thought he was dead meat but worked hard to save others. THEN fought to keep his LEG so he could be deployable again! Thank GOD in Heaven for men like this.
