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 is just an upset wannaby war hero. He has made several threats to our coalition forces. I understand he is being traced and will soon be investigated for mutiny against the United Stated of America. Punishable by hanging.however, most likely 7 years in federal prison for threatening the FBI,CIA, the President of the United States, the US Armed Forces and Mexicans!

    General Bad! If you are a 12 year old with braces going through puberty, I'm going to call your mom and tell her you are talking trash about our Country. She is going to kick your little hairy Ass.

    Good night all Americans. General bad is being traces as you all know. For specific threats against our Government officials. Especially the CIA and FBI. He might be trying to infiltrate Millitary intrest. His extreme pro death ideology against US Special Ops is being traced right now. Good night again.
