Today I thought a photo would suffice. 

This is First Sergeant Brad Kasel, being carried out of the “House From Hell” in Fallujah in 2006.  Note the sidearm still clasped in his hand.  He was shot seven times, and took 44 pieces of shrapnel after throwing himself over a wounded troop when an insurgent lobbed in a grenade.  He was awarded the Navy Cross…

To all of our veterans, a heartfelt thank you…for all you do, all you sacrifice.  We love you…
