    True honor

    Four soldiers stopped to salute this vet with no legs. All who serve their country bear burdens from that service, some bear the greatest burden of freedom and others are at peace in the earth. What a great gift to the man bearing the heaviest in this life. Recognition, Respect, Honor, Gratitude.

    original pinner: I just wanted to tell you the story behind this hero. I stumbled across this pin by complete accident the other day. I knew exactly who it was even without a name or seeing his face. His name, Srg Michael Knapp, saying goodbye to his daughter Kinsley, it was one of the last times he got to hold her. On May 18th 2012 he was killed overseas. We miss you Michael, you are fallen but not forgotten

    This is Corporal Sandy Levit. She was recently killed in action in Afghanistan when she tried to rescue a wounded ranger pinned down by insurgents. She didn't hesitate when she tried to save his life. She believed that his life was more valuable than hers and put herself in immediate danger. Acts of heroism and brotherhood are what society needs.

    Staff Sergeant Javier Ortiz-Rivera called his boys his little Marines. He loved playing with them and teaching them how to salute and stand tall. The youngsters used those lessons to bid their father farewell. Wearing tiny Marine uniforms made especially for them, they saluted their father as he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. *tears* Breaks my heart!

    The Veteran asked ONE of the Marines if he could have a photo taken with him…. As you can see from the photo the Marines answer. oorah! #USMC

    Traci Wise: I found my son sitting having a moment with his daddy (SFC Benjamin Wise) the other day. We lost him January 15 in Afghanistan… we cannot forget about the incredible loss these children must undertake.” ||Heartbreaking. REALLY makes me resent people like the MSNBC host who was conflicted about calling fallen soldiers heroes....The man in that picture is a hero to his son.

    UNCOMMON VALOR - This is what a HERO looks like. In 2010, he threw himself on a grenade to save his buddy. We don't just see Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter in this picture. We see an example of why we have our freedom. We see a MAN among men. We see someone we wish we could thank in person.

    He was hit by enemy fire, kept firing, rushed to the aid of a Marine, denied himself meds in case any Marines got hurt worse than him, and now he's back in Afghanistan to help the Marines again. Read more: Thank you!

    You can see the love in her face ♥

    Thank you for your Service....Marine Cpl. Ronny Porta was severely burned in May 2007 in Al Asad, Iraq, when his Humvee hit an improvised explosive device. Two other Marines died in the attack.
