      Sacrificed himself for another. Whoever the driver of the MRAP was needs to pay the fuck attention when he's driving. 11B. Damn proud man.

    Weichel and others like him are the real face of the US armed forces. Unfortunately we don't hear enough in the mainstream media about these guys and girls so thank you, Rick, for posting their stories.

    The news always picks up the negative stories and will run with them but when a story of sacrifice is out there it almost tossed away. I did hear about this on Fox and was saddened but also lifted up also to know that our men and women in uniform are still willing to look out for the Afghanistan people.

    I am certain that SGT Weichel did not want to sacrifice himself but knew it was a dangerous situation and could only see a small child in danger and moved into action. His actions were truly heroic. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and children.
