Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. The first Marine got shot and the second came to get him and got shot dead a third and fourth would also get wounded but succeeded in retrieving the two Marines. So to recap: four Marines three wounded one KIA. No one left behind. God Bless Our Troops!

If this doesn’t pull at your heart strings, you have no soul.

There was actually no KIA or “shot dead”. Gunnery Sergeant Shane was dragging a fellow wounded Marine whom had been wounded (shot through the femoral artery). Gunnery Sergeant was struck in his body armor by enemy machine gun fire before a round found his lower back as he bent over. The third is actually a Navy Corpsman - Joel Lambott. This all happened during operation Al Fajr in Fallujah.

When I first found and posted the pics from the internet, I posted the info I found with the pictures at that time, not much info and apparently wrong =/

Since reading your reply to this post, I did more googling and found this info on the matter: Gunnery Sgt. Ryan P. Shane breaks cover to rescue a fatally wounded Marine while under enemy fire in Fallujah. Seconds later he is hit several times by enemy rounds, The Marines respond with a high rate of suppressive fire as Navy Corpsman HM Joel Lambott rescues the wounded

May God Bless them all <3

South Dakota-based artist John Lopez (previously featured here) creates awesome life-size sculptures of animals by welding together pieces of scrap metal, often pieces of abandoned farm machinery collected from local ranchers and farmers that he’s known since he was a kid. The creatures he creates are so lifelike that it’s hard to believe their myriad parts and pieces were ever used for anything else.

Visit John Lopez’s website, blog and Facebook page to check out more of his magnificent metalwork.

The Best from ‘Mad Dog Mattis’…  1. “I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.” 2. “The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot.” 3. “I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.” 4. “Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they’re so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.” 5. “Marines don’t know how to spell the word defeat.” 6. “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.” 7. “The most important six inches on the battlefield is between your ears.” 8. “You are part of the world’s most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.” 9. “There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim.” 10. “No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.” 11. “There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It’s really great.” 12. “You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world, it’s going to be bad.” 13. “You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.” 14. “I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.” 15. “Demonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy’ than a U.S. Marine.” 16. “Fight with a happy heart and strong spirit”

 

General Mattis is the MAN.

Ricks 1955 Chevy wagon. That’s right, it’s a 4 door, and perfect. Rick and his brother have been cranking away at this, and the end result is stunning.
