      That is the video they were banned from filming in San Fransico. Stupid peacenix hippies.

    From the looks of that we will need to stay in Iraq at least another 100 years

    These cream of Iraqi youth are destined to become “Mine Finders”. It doesn’t take much dexterity to put your fingers in your ears and squint your eyes while you tap one foot out in front of your body. Going from side to side then taking a step and repeating the procedure over again.
    RB, thanks for the video. This is what instills the same pride I had when I was a active duty Marine. To those who don’t know, “Once a Marine, Always a Marine”.
    SEMPER FIDELIS
    ALWAYS FAITHFUL

    This explains everything that has happened in the Middle East.

    Looks like some serious visual processing problems and neurological disconnects. Even a klutz like me can do jumping jacks!

    If this had been a class of first or second graders, there would be lots of referrals to the school nurse for some neurological testing for a few of those people. A bit of dyslexia, a bit of minimal brain disfunction …

    I second MinnesotaRush….God bless our military personnel! I have learned more about the Marine Corps from this book:

    Below is a link to a Hollywood-style book trailer for “Once a Marine: An Iraq War Tank Commander’s Inspirational Memoir of Combat, Courage, and Recovery,” by Nick Popaditch with Mike Steere (Savas Beatie, October 1, 2008).

    Make sure you watch to the very end for a “special” photo message from “Gunny Pop” Nick. I know you will appreciate seeing him.

    Nick “Gunny Pop” Popaditch is a former marine Gunnery Sergeant, a Silver Star winner, a 15-year veteran of the USMC, and was widely known around the world as “The Cigar Marine:” (Google it.). His tanks captured Firdos “Saddam” square in April 2003 and pulled down the hated statue. Nick was severely wounded one year later with an RPG to the head, which was captured live by a media news crew. He had to fight his way through an incredible odyssey of turmoil, heartbreak, and bureaucracy to recover everything he had lost. His website is http://www.onceamarine.com.

    If you know anyone in the media who you think would be interested in interviewing “Gunny Pop,” don’t hesitate to call or email them and let them know.

    We appreciate your support of Nick and his family in any way you are able. The success of this book will open doors for this blind warrior, and hopefully provide revenue and success to someone who has sacrificed so much for his country.

    Thank you.
