People go through that kind of stuff and come back, get old, and we pass by them every day in the supermarkets or at Wal-mart or wherever else. People with amazing stories of courage and sacrifice that we never know about.

Amazing Story

Wish everyone cared that much for their fellow countrymen!

these are the people who fight for us day in and day out. Yet the average person and especially the kids these days know nothing about this. What a terrible shame.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Incredible story

What a man - what a hero. I think we all wish that if ever we were put in such a situation we could respond with just a bit of the bravery and devotion that he did.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

I can understand that for sure but I will ask in the morning see what he says. Like you said can't hurt and he is good and not cocky he will tell you if he can't do something. That is why he will be my only tattoo artist from now on.
