    :rofl: dont you have one broly :coold:
    medals dont impress me. Fuck, John Kerry had what, 3 Purple Hearts. But then again, Col. Hackworth always said that he was proudest of his 8 Purple Hearts and his CIB. And that comes from a man who had 2 DSCs, 10 Silver Stars, and 8 Bronze Stars.

    Seriously, that guys fruit salad must have been enough to make any pog piss himself.

    A purple heart says nothing about a person other than they were injured in combat. I am not impressed by a purple heart.

    Im not blown away by seeing someone have them, but at the same time if i had one, it probably something that i was really proud of. Yea, i managed to get my dumb ass shot, but at the same time, its a recognition of your sacrifice as well.

    :rolleyes:

    I know I respect the sacrifice of those who are wounded or killed serving their country.

    However getting your panties in a wad because Brackac compares the Marines versus the Army and Airforce members in this forum is pathetic. I'm sure in your head there is no possible way any other service member on this board could come close to the shear power, courage, strength, intelligence, and skill level that you and your fellow Marine's possess.

    Perhaps someday you will get over yourself. :rofl:

    It goes for all wounded service men and women, not just the Marines.

    Regardless, still not impressed by a ribbon that is awarded due to someone getting injured. Goes along the lines of a little quote from a great man.


    "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.
    He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."
    - General George Patton Jr

    I don't argue the sacrifice, but a ribbon for getting injured is not impressive. And yes people do go to war hoping to get Purple Hearts. As sad as that sounds.

    Yeah, maybe a lot of people think "I would take a few pieces of shrapnel for a purple heart. As long as I am not SERIOUSLY injured."

    But nobody would trade their legs, arms, or eyesight for a ribbon.

    my cousin was killed a couple years ago in Iraq - he was a door-gunner in a Marine Huey that went down due to mechanical problems during a resupply mission. my aunt and uncle got all up in arms because he wasn't awarded a purple heart, and wrote nasty letters until the Corps decided to award it posthumously to shut them up.

    it really pissed me off that they cared so much about a goddamned medal when their son was dead. they acted like the medal would bring him back or something.

    and for the record, i read up extensively on the medal and his situation, and the USMC was correct for NOT awarding it. he was not involved in direct combat or even support of direct combat, and his injuries were not the result of enemy fire. still, he was an honorable Marine who gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country. i think that's worth much more than a medal.

    brackac I can see your point of view. If you knew more about each individual troops story behind their purple heart, would you be impressed?

    not to those that have earned them. I'm not talking about the good conduct and other crap ribbons.
