Green Beret awarded Medal of Honor

President Barack Obama on Wednesday awarded the Medal of Honor - the nation's highest military decoration - to Staff Sgt. Robert J. Miller, a Green Beret who died after willingly taking fire to protect U.S. and Afghan soldiers.

The citation read at a solemn White House ceremony in Washington, D.C., honored Miller for "conspicuous gallantry ... at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty" and "extraordinary acts of heroism" on January 25, 2008, when a patrol he led was ambushed in Afghanistan.

Miller killed at least 10 insurgents and wounded dozens more in repeatedly exposing himself to enemy fire "in keeping with the highest traditions of military service," the citation said.

Miller is the seventh service member to receive the Medal of Honor for actions during operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    All the stupid raghead suicide boys. They are strapped with explosives against their will. And just like Saddamm Hussein demanded they are drugged and forced to confront special forces units and detonate themselves or be killed by the superior coalition units.

    The superior special forcs unts who know how to read and are the best trained in the world continue to beat down the inferior illiderates who believe in suicide instead of dying in the battlefield. General bad you need to instruct your GI toy inferior forces to not hide in the mountains like cowards.
