My friend Dan, an older gent, served as a United States Marine for over 40 years. He's a great guy, but he's more Republican than a Texas gun club. And he's always forwarding these emails to me - stories from military "insiders" about how great GW Bush is and how you don't hear about his and the US military's wondrous accomplishments in Iraq because the "liberal news media" would rather tally up the week's dead than report the "truth". Anyhow, they're all ironically funny, but this one just went WAY too far. Enjoy! ---- Subject: What Kind of Man would do such a thing? At Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington DC recently the Sergeant Major of the Army, Jack Tilley, was with a group of people visiting the wounded soldiers. He saw a Special Forces soldier who had lost his right hand and suffered severe wounds of his face and side of his body. The Sergeant Major of the Army wanted to honor him and show him respect without offending, but what can you say or do in such a situation that will encourage and uplift? How do you shake the right hand of a soldier who has none? There was a man in that group of visitors who had his wife with him to visit the wounded. He seemed to know exactly what to do. This man reverently took the soldiers stump of a hand in both of his hands, knelt at the bedside and prayed for him. When he finished the prayer, he stood up, bent over the soldier and kissed him on the head and told him that he loved him. A powerful expression of love and Christ-like example, for one of our wounded heroes. What kind of a man would do such a thing? The wounded man's Commander-in-Chief, George W.Bush; President of the U.S.A. This story was told by the Sergeant Major of the Army, at a Soldiers' Breakfast held at Red Arsenal, AL, and recorded by Chaplain James Henderson, stationed there. Pass it on... the press won't.
