If anything that can be said about this guy is that God sure is keeping him.

I used to be a bit of an adrenalin junkie and took a lot of unnecessary risks. Served in the the Infantry as well but it was during the Cold War. My sister (Air Force) was fond of saying that my guardian angle was going to meet me at the pearly gates with a switch for making him work so hard.

If that is true, this boy is going to have a real whoopin waiting for him.

Just my two cents worth for the pot.

What a miracle! I believe that God has a plan for all of us. We will stay here and be useful until the plan is fulfilled and probably not one minute more.

These guys and their big smiles have captured my undying respect and admiration. They really do know what it means to face what life dishes out one day at a time. They cope. They are American heroes and generally exemplify all the best that is American.

At the ripe old age of 31 Sgt. Joiner has learned more lessons about men under stress and when and how true character emerges. Watch the way he moves in a group, the way he talks. They move and speak with the calm confidence of the WWII generation.

Maybe the plan for them is to band together and lead our sad nation out of the hole it is in. I can’t imagine them letting someone take their Liberty away like the sheeple majority. They are fearless because they know God will care for them as long as their purpose is unfulfilled. There just aren’t enough of them.

My Son is one and has the experience and makings of a better man than I’ll ever be.

When Bush was president blood dripped from every newscast every day. Now the war is a once a week reality show.

My son survived 3 IED’s and 1 VBED. He lost a few buddies, but he’s still with us.

It is time to bring this soldier home and have him start teaching those assigned to the combat zones how to recognize and combat the IED threat. Otherwise, if you crave the adrenaline high from being blown up and missed, then the next one could be the magic number for you and you're killed or maimed for life.
