Marine loses leg; returns to Iraq anyways

A Marine's kneecap was shattered by a sniper bullet in Iraq. Ultimately, he lost the leg -- and with a new prosthetic, joined back up with the Corps and is voluntarily serving in Iraq again.

He isn't just an inspiration to his comrades in the Corps. He's an inspiration to Americans everywhere.

On a non-important, non-Iraq note, if men wonder why women swoon over guys in uniform, look to guys like this. Because they're bad-asses, plain and simple. They're brave, they're tough, and they're willing to stand up for the country and the people that they love, even if it means dying for them. It's not just how they look in uniform that turns us on; when we see videos like that, we can't help but think in the back of our minds, "Dayum, I gotta get me one of those!"

What a wonderful story, Cassy! It brings tears to my eyes to see this great soldier getting back to doing what he loves and serving our country. His amazing family deserves our praise as well.

I approve of respecting our military, and I agree that many women appreciate a military man for the right reasons, but I fail to understand the urge to channel the expectorative musings of Boss Hogg.

Boss Hogg? I would of gone with Mammy Yoakum myself.

If it weren't for the content of their character, most of them would just be average looking guys in funny looking clothes.

But, "anyways", on to my next idiotic offering.

What's even more incredible is how you're tolerated around here, Ryan, with your fixation on slamming one editor in particular at every opportunity.

I'm reminded of a schoolboy with a crush. It's almost cute, in a creepy restraining order sort of way.

Give it up, dipshit. I am fairly certain Cassy's spoken for -- by one of those currently serving in Iraq, if I'm not mistaken.

Why not go stalk someone who's a bit closer to your ideology, Ryan? I hear Code Pink has quite a few single women... and with good reason.
