This man received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions in the initial attack to secure the Baghdad Airport in April 2003.

Here is the link to the whole story and why the American media should be ashamed of itself for giving more attention to Britney Spears screwed up life than to the ultimate sacrifice of this patriot.

Remember these men and women who are in harm's way. They are there for our children and our way of life. When you complain about the weather, think of 135 degrees in the shade and thank God for men and women of Honor like SFC Paul Smith. Our country was built on the sacrifice of these honored heroes.

Americans have no idea what it takes to defend a nation. This hero and others like him deserve more than any athlete, movie star or celebrity. Sadly the Marines at the tomb of the unkown soldier have another life to memorize.
