I was just getting ready to start a thread for you. See you beat me to it.

Let us know when you're heading to D.C. The chapter would love to throw a welcome home party for you.

Here's the photo of you being awarded the Bronze Star. Congrats!

Nicely done. Our 3 sons served in USMC, one lost 2 limbs at Fallujah 11/8/2004. We understand the difference care on the battlefield can make, and we are grateful for your service and sacrifice.

Outstanding!

That took compassion and a pair you need a wheelbarrow to haul around!

You have my undying respect (from a former firefighter/EMS).

Thanks Kristinn if you don't mind could you post a side by side of me and my father he received his Silver and Bronze Stars 61 years ago this month. I am just following in his footsteps. Who says father's behavior don't impact their sons.

Good Deal Warrior, proving yourself in battle is an honor many don't have the integrity to do. Something to be proud of.

I have a nephew who is a AF PJ, several deployments in Afghan since 2010. He got a silver star & a couple bronze stars; and he doesn't see it as anything special actually. I think I'm more proud than he is, ha ha. Anyway, I got picts & the citations describing the event; they once were online on AF site. They had to recover a deceased pilot and Taliban opened up on them while they were winching body to pavehawk. Heli pilot had to exit area, flight engineer wounded, RPGs being shot at pavehawk, and PJs wouldn't leave without body. They got shot at for 6 hours, Taliban shouted their intents to take them prisoner,(was like 40-50 taliban 100 yards away in the rocks) then when AF showed back up; nephew got to give them reverse azimuths for hell fire strikes; told me was the coolest thing he ever done; imagine that, ha ha. Anyway, me don't mean to go on, figured you would appreciate hearing the story as it's in your chosen field.

Congrats on the award, it will follow you in a positive way all your life. Both you and your father have proven yourselves in battle as truly patriotic Americans.

Here's a novel, Sand and Fire, about Afghanistan and Libya that some might enjoy. It's coming out July 10. (I don't get a cut! I wish!)

Don't read the description--it tells too much. A Marine gunnery sergeant, Blount, who appeared in Young's previous books is now the main character, and Young's fans will be delighted. Bount does medical stuff very well, which is why he reminded me of Warrior Nurse. Race, you will like him too. I'm not telling why.
