In Honor Of A True Patriot... And All Those Who Gave Their Life To Defend Liberty

A regular reader of Rational Nation sent the following very moving tribute to an American Patriot. An individual who served his country honorably and in the end gave the ultimate sacrifice.

While the events portrayed occurred in 2006, it is never too late to acknowledge and honor those who made the commitment to defend liberty and the pursuit thereof.

Perhaps we should, as a result of watching the following, give serious consideration as to what cause(s) constitute a proper and just  reason to ask our young men and women to put their lives on the line to defend.



  1. Wouldn't it be great if we could get ALL Americans to put aside their political agendas for 2 minutes and simply watch this?

  2. Yes it would indeed Will.

    We should all pause now and again to reflect on the American individuals that put their lives on the line every day. Both here at home as well as abroad.
