The Salute Seen ‘Round the World

Guest post by Chrissythehyphenated:

Cpl. Josh Hargis, 24, was wounded in October when a suicide bomber in Afghanistan triggered more than a dozen explosive devices. When the Army ranger’s commanding officer came to his bedside to present him with a Purple Heart, everyone in the room reportedly thought he was unconscious. Then Hargis raised his bandaged hand for what his wife called “the most beautiful salute any person in that room had ever seen. That’s when “grown men began to weep.”

    Lord forgive me, but I despise that godless, heartless, Marxist whore Barack Hussein Obama with the heat of a gazillion exploding supernovas.

    It really does bring a tear to the eye and such a feeling of pride for our fighting men and women and our country.
