Very few humans know sacrifice for our way of life (warning: 6 graphic/powerful photos)

The title and strong photos are not meant to be taken as a political statement. They show the graphic nature of what soldiers are faced with on a daily basis. theBrigade is nothing without showing the hell of war. To the Marine that will never walk again, thank you.

    I am sorry for the man who lost his legs. No amount of anything can make up for how he feels. Praying for as good a recovery as can be expected, praying that he can keep a good attitude is the best I can do. Feeling helpless as I do for him. Thank you Sir for your incredible personal sacrifice and your service to our country. God Bless you and your family. Semper Fi

    get well brother, all of america is with you

    I'll bet you anything you want to bet that he will walk again. Prosthetic legs, physical therapy & determination go a hell of a long way.

    Marine, I don't know if you'll ever see this comment, but I'm sure some of your brothers will. THANK YOU from the depths of my soul. My life, my liberty, my world would be gone without the sacrifices you all make. I know 1st hand what this life takes out of a family. Y'all mean the world to me. Thank you. Deeply.

      I knew the wording wasn't working b/c he will find a way to walk again. Sometimes, I'm not sure how to put the right sentence together…but I agree, if there's a way, a Marine and those caring for him will find it.

        You know…..sometimes there are no words for something like this. All you can do is sit back and see these things happen around you and stand in awe of how far the tragedies of war touches the soul. You pray for the day you see these fine men and women get up on their own and try to make their return to "normality", though it is nothing normal what these fine people go through so that we don't have to.

        This country is indebted many more times over than we will ever see. To all those who serve, served, or will serve, no two words have ever had such a small standing but hit straight home than Thank You

    to win one war, we would lost so much…

    • Stan_Dalone

      Unfortunately War is hell, What we have lost? nothing compared to what we keep. Our country our dignity, our pride, honor, FREEDOM to say and do as we please. These men that we lost mean a lot to us. They fought and died for what they believe in. No greater honor is bestowed.People run around all the time yelling we want this we want that, but are not willing to lay anything on the line for it. These men and women of the armed forces have. We owe them dearly for the cost of freedom. I am proud of our men and women of the armed forces and what we stand for on the world stage. I am proud to be an American

    Posting a comment on a website just seems pale but it comes from the heart. Nothing I could say would be enough nothing I could do would make right the sacrifices this men went through as well as many many others. In this politicaly correct world we live in right now I believe our military embodies all that’s good about American, the Honor, the Courage the pride that comes from wearing the flag on their shoulder. God bless each and every one of them as they stand guard and defend us. Although these are simply words, they come from the heart …Thank you very much!

    They were once ordinary people, they volunteered, they know the risks and yet they still get up everyday and do their job where most people would run away, they are true heroes.

    • Humbled

      They are still ordinary people, they have just been changed by the depths of hell they go through on a daily basis. The best we can do, is to show support for them, not just when they are outside the wire but when they return to civilian life.

    Thank you to all of our soldiers for their continuing sacrifice to protect the rights the rest of us are fortunate to enjoy everyday. Without their sacrifice we would not be able to continue to be the best country in the world. Thank you to all who have served and continue to serve. Respectivly submitte, former US Navy Seabee

  • Jay

    • Lisa

      Jay, my heartfelt thanks go to him & his family.

      There is a link to my facebook profile in my intense debate name. Click on where it says "Lisa" next to my picture up there. My facebook is on the left side under "Connect with Lisa". If you have an address, I'd like to send him a snail mail letter & a small token of my appreciation. (I make dream catchers…really well…really really well & I'd like to send him one.) Could you please holler at me through facebook messages? Thank you.

  • Victoria

    I'm rooting for you!

  • etcrr

    Semper Fi MARINE!

    You will make it through!

  • dfe

    Never walk again? Tell a Marine he cant do something will just make him attempt it bigger, better and with an ongoing sense of interest.

    I somehow missed this when it was originally posted.

    I've been fortunate enough to meet several wounded warriors, including some guys who have lost one or both legs. I know the mental and physical challenges of recovering from something like this are more than the human mind can comprehend, but I believe that military types do better in the recovery phase than civilians. And I don't mean that as a slam, because certainly a great many civilians have the guts necessary to keep it together, and some soldiers don't. But I think the military, especially combat units, cultivate an attitude in which the individual refuses to be beaten down by his or her circumstances.

    So I'm glad to hear, as Jay said, that this Marine is going to pull through. Also, the VA is going to do everything in their power to take care of him. I mentioned this in the other post of the Marine with two prosthetic legs, and this guy will be considered 100% disabled by the VA, and will receive enough compensation that he'll never have to work again and can live quite comfortably (depending on his family situation).
