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.

    General Bad! I'm sorry to say. As a infantry grunt. I respect you young stupid untrained forces. I will bury them with respect and pray for them to go to heaven as I forgive them. They did not know better. They were forced to die from supperior coalition forces. I do feel bad that you young boyd had to commit suicide instead of fighting. I do feel bad that Bin Ladden has to hide in the b listering heat in the summer and freezing temp in winter. God bless you and your sorry ass undicipline disorganized scattered young men.

    General Bad. You need to respect the superior forces and they will respect you! Our Generals fired you because you decided to hide instead of fighting. I saw your millitary records. You were fired for deserting your army and raping you female comrads. In addition, you did not brush your teeth or wipe your dirty Ass.
