    Amen to him.
    May he rest in peace.
    He was a true American fighting for what he believed in. A patriot.

    While that's 100% true, it's not very often Veteran's are rewarded as much as they should. A lot of times, after they come home from the war, they still have to go out, get jobs just to make ends meat. A lot of jobs don't even look at Veterans as a real holiday, and if they have a Veteran working for them... oh well.

    The sad part is that this Veteran did it through the hope for of his Country, what it represents and symbolizes. It's sad that most Americans don't have that kind of spirit to join the military with pride; all it comes down too is filling your pockets with Benjamins. Sadly there's are WWII, Korean, Vietman, and Gulf War veterans that come back to this soil and have a harder time looking for a job!

    Edit: Ah, my 2k post about a War veteran who passed away. What a symbolic post this is...

    Just a shame he didn't make it to the Mattel Hoverboard era.

    so true, i was reading a while back about how so many men that have served their country for years, are left jobless after they return from war. They're treated like kids who've just finished education, not getting any priority in jobs. It's quite shameful knowing these men spent most of their lives protecting us, and end up getting left without an income once they have no more use.

    May he rest in peace.

    Wow. 110. Would have been cool if he was born in 1899. Then he could have legally joined the military AND lived to see 3 centuries.
