I'm so proud and have to share this. A long time ago I mentored a group of kids who were going through high school and into college. We would get together once a week, go through books, study the Bible, etc. One of those kids went into the Navy and was deployed to Afghanistan as a medic attached to a Marine unit.

He spent almost a year over there and when he came back, shared a few stories about his time there, and we were just really proud of him.

Today I found out that he received the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for heroic achievement. While under intense enemy machine gun fire, he reached an injured soldier..shielded him with his own body while administering treatment for two hours.

He's just one of so many who are so brave and proud to represent all of us and give us the right to be football fans, have freedom, and make our living. Way to go, soldiers!
