    "
    March 4, 2002: John Chapman, an Air Force Combat Controller, along with a SEAL Team, are attempting to rescue their lost teammate. You'll watch Chapman's stunning and heroic actions as he saves the lives of his entire SEAL team, and another 18 members of a quick-reaction force, to earn America's highest honor: The Medal of Honor."

    Haunting. We don't make many like him; or the entire squad for that matter.
    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed;
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!
    -Lord Byron (=5 lines)

      Would be good for more people to see that, and more like it; might help some to understand. Ace2
      Sometimes the term 'Idiot' is a description and not an insult.

          Recorded? Congressional Medal of Honor dates from Civil War. Did they mean TV record?
          The people think the Constitution protects their rights; But government sees it as an obstacle to be overcome.
          If your religion says suicide and murder are wrong; Aren't you doing both if you are not prepared to defend your life and the lives of others?

            They meant the action in the medal was awarded was recorded, James.

              I knew it. Just the details and a poor use of language.
