    Taylor’s significant other is a hero, too. The man sacrificed willingly (he knew what he signed up for), but she had no power over the situation or the outcome, and look at her strength. Actually, the mental fortitude on display here by both Taylor and SO is absolutely inspiring.

      new red GMC Canyon just by some parttime working online with a laptop. visit
      their website F­i­s­c­a­l­p­o­s­t­.­C­O­M­

    To Zelu….go fuck yourself asshole. Seriously, whatever you may think of the war, only a heartless prick would read this story and start mumbling about oil interests. I really hope you die of a very painful cancer, you are a sick, sick, fucking excuse for a human being.

    • Ban_stupid_people

      Hooah! a thousand times!

  • Ban_stupid_people

    *This* is what I loved about being in the Army – to be able to serve alongside men like him. Hooah Taylor, from a Navy brat turned soldier.
    BTW,
    Beat Navy ; >
    (yeah, right…)

  • djm1992

    I’d wager he has more of a life than you ever will, Zelu.

    Private oil company interests?!? You commie pieces of crap need to get new, non worn-out talking points…….

  • RJ Wagner

    Raise your hand if you’ve ever even hear of Coimbra before this fuq showed up.

    Seriously, I’ve had about enough of Europe. Putin can take the whole continent for all I care. Should have let Hitler keep it and just settled our business with the Japs.

  • BillClintonsShorts17

    Zelu Marmolillo – What oil is there in Afghanistan? And, yeah, every time a U.S. bullet sends a jihadi to his reward I am being protected. So Taylor is a hero and infinitely more of a man than a pendejo like you.

  • Erik Larsen

    If this is what’s its like, can I please be an American?
