Well, he's definitely a hero. Saved a child and left 3 of his own behind. Thanks for posting. Will pray for those who are grieving for him and all the fallen.

it should be a happy story but so sad.
what an incredible man, what a hero.
you're right, stories like this seem to slip through the cracks. this should be all over the news. But it seems like all they report is dirty laundry.

My heart goes out to those he left behind.

I posted this the other day and mostly got crap for it. Seems people care more about certain incidents in Florida to care about much else these days.

It's bad to see more of our brothers die but at least some good came of it. Thanks for reposting. Hopefully others will see it and take a minute to remember this fine man and the sacrifice he made.

Semper Fi.

And I knew it wouldn't take long before posts like this would appear.The man did the right thing and he lost his life for it.I'd like to think any human being would've done the same thing to save the life of a child.I can imagine this would've been HUGE news if the headline read "US soldier stands by while girl is runover by truck"Get a grip people.Not every damn story is propaganda.

The reason you do not hear about the good is because your reasons for being there sucks (from my point of view). I hope that US being there will bring and end to the Christian-Muslim duality but it will probably not since you will have parasitic egocapitalism following and Muslims have a right to be angry at your corperations.

Haters will be haters and lovers will be lovers. Unfortunatly I am a lover and a hater caught up in duality myself.

Another soul has gone home. Thank you for saving the girl and showing us the right way. God please take good care of the ones that where left behind.

That's because we've done more bad than good around the world and you can thank our clueless leaders for that one.

This guy was a hero. He actually saved someone.

Unlike other soldiers, who are labeled heroes by default just because they sign up.

This is depressing. Neither him or that little girl should have been in this situation.

We should not be over there.

As I hear more from family and others, he was the living embodiment of the Army’s core values: courageous, selfless and loyal. All values we expect from our soldiers. We mourn all combat deaths, but this one is a significant loss.”

Sadly, today we realized the death of a Rhode Island National Guard Soldier in a combat zone, and we are once again reminded of the enduring sacrifice our Soldiers and Airmen have made, and continue to make, in service to this great country."


How are the lines above not propaganda. What they are telling you is that we shall think of the army as: courageous, selfless and loyal (loyal to who, the people or the ones giving orders). And since he is these things we are to since we belong to the same group.

Sadly, today we realized the death of a Rhode Island National Guard Soldier in a combat zone, and we are once again reminded of the enduring sacrifice our Soldiers and Airmen have made, and continue to make, in service to this great country."

Are meant to make ous agree that US is a great country and that our soldiers are doing a duty that is needed. There are person in you country that are good but some people suck bigtime and unfortunatly you are ruled by some of the worst manipulators in history. Bush and Obama would have fit in fine with Hitler and Stalin (and history will probably record it that they where). They are just covering their tracks better and do not need as much policestate since media is fixing the nationallistic tone.

You are just being forcefeed duality again. The same divide and conquerer rutine as always that will enslave you because you get emotianaly caught up with wanting to belong to the group. If you cant see that this is propaganda then I will weep for mankind. Because if you as a separate individual cannot see thru the smokesscreen than lets just give TPTB all they want because you definetly deserve to be slaves if you can't figure this out.

For heaven sake read one line at a time and try to figure out unemotianaly what they are saying and implying.

Exactly this.

But to be fair to the soldier, he risked his life and saved another.

Commendable.

Now that is a true hero, with all the atrocities that soldiers are doing its good to see that at least one soldier did the right thing. This isnt about whether the US should be there or not. This is about a soldier, HERO, who sacrificed his life to save a little girl. RIP

This is some pure uncut Herostuff...I doubt many would do the same in that situation. Imagine yourself in that position...having to make the choice of dying to save a life in a splitsecond. RIP
