Cpl. Lonnie Young kneels next to his wounded comrade in high spirits, despite the fact there is a bullet lodged in his back. Young, a Defense Messaging System administrator by trade, learned first-hand that every Marine is a rifleman when the base he was working on in An Najaf, Iraq came under attack by approximately 800 anti-coalition militiamen, April 4, 2004. Young fought alongside seven Blackwater Security personnel in an effort to secure the base.

Marines are different from us. When they're shot at, they dont run away from their assailants. They move on them.

God bless the USMC. They done more for civil rights and human rights than every NGO combined.

There appears to be a darkened, blackish-colored streak emanating from the hole going towards his spine at a slightly downward trajectory. Is that the bullet track under his skin?

I pity anyone who fucks around with our military.

With crazy muthas like this fighting for us, what chance does the enemy have?

He has an unfortunate resemblance to Pvt Pyle in Full Metal Jacket.

The field-expedient shoulder sleeves (groin protectors wrapped around the arm and sewn in place, IIRC, I thought I heard they might become a sanctioned mod) serve to stop that exact injury.
