    Bowe Bergdahl and Danny Chen are heroes now? I was one of the defense counsel on the Chen case and I can tell you that the opera could not have possibly been based off of any evidence at the court martial otherwise my client and others would not have been acquitted of the most serious charges. And then an active duty captain has the balls to show up in uniform and cheer? His commander will be getting a phone call.

    Not from where I stand. In the military, as long as you are where you're supposed to be, on time and doing what you're supposed to be doing, you serve honorably. If you do something for the greater good, that is even better. If you are a screw-up, wander off and either get captured because you were stupid OR seek out the enemy because you are curious, that is not honorable, nor is it heroic.

    This asshat tied up a lot of resources, put several soldiers at risk and then caused us to turn over the board of directors for al queda. Nope, not a hero, not even close.

      The United States military is as strong as it is because we have generations of culture demanding that we do not give up; we do not desert. If we start ignoring people who do, or worse, recognizing them as heroes, the military will fall to pieces.

            Speaking of shooting him, Steve Doucey on Fox said he had talked on the phone to one of the officers in charge of taking a team and trying to go find Bergdahl. Based on all the intel they had at the time, the officer told Doucey he had warned his team to be prepared to shoot him because there was a chance it would be an ambush.

                I would have to ask if his captors handed Bergdahl a weapon, which way do you think he would point it?!?!

                    He will be given a full PTSD retirement (and he might even be promoted one more time).

                      This whole thing has me too angry to write a coherent comment. So I wont comment.
