The actions of one Rhode Island National Guard Soldier epitomized the Army Value of selfless service, “doing one’s duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain,” as he heroically saved an Afghan child without regard for his own life.
Sgt. Dennis P. Weichel Jr., 29, of Providence, R.I, died March 22, from injuries sustained when he was struck by an armored fighting vehicle after moving an Afghan child to safety.

Events like this mean nothing when the American military machine has killed more Afghani civilians than the Taliban or Mujahadeen ever did. Too little. Too late.

Nobody is saying forget about the horrible murders that took place. I was just highlighting an incident to show that not every military member makes bad decisions. I am also open to this possibly being a setup or at least a distraction of some sort. But it still happened, and a US service member has lost their life. At least something positive came from his sacrifice.
