Anymore off-topic back and forth bickering and we'll have to close the thread and that would be pretty sad considering the nature of the topic.
A Marine who was mourned during a special ceremony Tuesday could be in line for the Medal of Honor, his friends said.
Sgt. Raphael Peralta, 25, has already been posthumously awarded the Purple Heart for actions in Fallujah, where he threw himself onto a grenade to save the lives of fellow Marines, according to The Army Times.
"There is no other description that I can give about him, other than to say he always gave his best," one Marine said. "To us Marines, the honor, courage and commitment that we give out there -- that he gave out there -- is what makes us keep going."

It's one thing for the liberal weiners and the right wing nut jobs to express their opinions but when it gets inmature then ATS has problems. Board trolls curse every board. Luckily ATS doesn't have too many compared to other forums.

I'm not Canadian. Don't assume. Could it be that you hate Canadians that much?
It's obvious you have a hard on for the US, but HE isn't the government, HE isn't Bush, HE isn't whoever or whatever you have a problem with.
There is nothing in my posts saying anything bad about this guy. Read them again (start on page 5). In fact I said in my first post that his death saddens me. There is no post of mine in this thread that puts down America at all. You are just making this up to justify hating. I am serious when I say that I want you to exactly quote where in this thread I have expressed hate for America, failure to do so will be taken as an admission of defeat. The only problem I had in this thread was to do with Ed's baiting threads. There is NOTHING in this thread from me about putting down this Marine. Do you understand?
Rather a citizen of this world, and from one citizen to another, be big enough to salute him for his self-less act...
Read my above comment in bold. And read my first post in which I state this act was brave and selfless. It is clear to me that you skimmed through this thread and paid no attention to my posts. Or you wouldn't be trying to tell me to say the things I already have. This is making you look rather stupid.
I salute him and appreciate him much more then I would people like you...
I don't seek your apprciation. You won't even read my posts properly before spouting your mouth off.
There is absolutely nothing to salute you for... Maybe if we were in grade 3 it would be different because it would be on your level of childish name calling and shallow hate....Dispicable.
I don't care for your salute and you don't know me. In grade 3 they at least they read everything required. Point out the name calling in my posts please. Point out the hate (if any) and for whom it was for.
The only thing that is 'despicable' is your lack of observation and quickness to hate.
