These guys are real Americans - putting their lives on the line and taking the fight to the enemy, before the enemy brings their terrorism here. One of the more touching stories is about Sgt. Walt Gaya.
|"Lying in the hospital, still in Iraq, Walt Gaya was in the United States Army, but he was not an American. Not on paper, anyway: Walt was born in Argentina. He survived the blast, but his new wounds would preclude his flight from Mosul to Baghdad in time |
to participate in a swearing-in ceremony that would have been his official welcome as a new American."
He lost much of the vision in his left eye due to his stryker being hit by a IED. His courage and determination are much to be admired and I send my heartfelt thanks and prayers to him and his family. I wish him all the best on his new citizenship, as well. Welcome to America. Now it can be truly said to be the 'home of the brave.'
Semper fi !
