Every now and then a story just touches your heart. This is one of them. May God Bless them all. And thank you for your service!
This is what happens when things are left to the people by the people and not the government. Welcome home Master Sergeant... Thank you for everything.
Indeed it is.
WOW....they just talked about 2 great MEN in the same article....way to go guys......
Reminds me of extreme makeover: home addition.
Individuals left alone do this kind of thing. Whereas that same soldier can't be seen at the government run VA to get a flu shot. Who gets it done?
It's nice to know that there are still good people in a world like we live in today.
I wish we could do the same for every man and woman coming home from war! Plushave a VA they can depend on and not die waiting to see a doctor!
Sweeet! great story, Love these stories!
G-d bless them...
That is the America I remember, The one that Obummer wanted to transform FROM!!! Where I grew up, neighbors did things like that all the time for each other, (not quite on that money scale), and I myself have done things like that for people.
It is a great story, and I applaud the folks involved, I am just suprised that it doesn't happen way more often.
God bless the United States Marine Corps!
Someone needs to go to jail over this and I'M sure some lawyer is looking for the smoking gun. For one thing they did this without his permission. Someone forgot to call the Government and get the Grant money. Nancy Polesi and Barbara Boxer were not included for the photo op. Someone is in big trouble.
Agreed - Just Awesome. Such a humble hero and such a great display of the heart and soul of Americans who understand charity, love, sacrifice, gratitude. Beautiful.
I was really afraid of opening this story. We have a saying in the Corps, 'You can trust a Marine with your life, but not your money or your wife'.
This is truly awesome.
Brother in Arms.
Brethren of ours.
God bless the good people of this nation.
They battle evil with goodness untold.
America's best days are not behind us as a failed President insists, they are upon us now as the noble and honorable among us perform the smallest acts of goodness daily.
Thank you for your service to our country,
Thank you for your service to your fellow soldiers.
Thank you for serving you fellow man.
Wow, a good news story. How fresh.
That lawn was so nice it has my stupid allergies making my eyes water.
That was Awesome!
Semper Fi ! It is just what "Jarheads" do.
What a great thing to do for this Marine and his family!!!
You said it all. Just Awesome.

“The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children” – Deitrich Bonhoeffer.
These aren't OUR children, Deits! They are Latin Americas. Guatamalas, and Mexicos, and most of them aren't children! Feed them, shower them, and send them back to their loving families who must miss them terribly.

No calculator either.

Where is the lynch mob?? If it were one of my girls kidnapped like this, forget the government non help, I would have organized the rescue and lynch squad myself. Some of the girls might die but many would be rescued instead of being never heard from again. At what point are people going to realize that they are on their own to solve things since government corruption and bureaucracy has grown to epic proportions?

14 + 4 is not the same as 10 + 8. The answer is the same, the question is NOT.
If I have 14 apples and you have 4 is not the same as me having 10 apples and you having 8. I just lost 4 apples here people! NOT THE SAME. Together we have 18 apples no matter which equation is used but I can’t make as many pies with 10 apples versus 14.
I know different people learn in different ways but to teach a lie as truth to susceptible children is wrong.

Dear Lord forgive these people for they know not what they do.

Scrub toilets for $20/hr being my own boss or be with the other 52% of unemployed art music literature teachers who graduated this past year from college with $45k debt….. hmmnnn YEAH, VCV, I think it’s career advice. Scrub a toilet.

I think the problem is that we are taught to place all these expectations of fulfillment on our employment. If you’re fulfilled by your work, great for you but your not really the norm. Most people view work as a means to get other things that they want, (trading labour for dollars then dollars for the stuff they need/want). However, we’ve gotten so cluttered in thinking in our society that only a “career” will do now that fulfills us. Well, careers are few. Jobs are plenty. Some are bad (quit those). Most are okay (work those with the attitude that hey, I could be unemployed). Few are ever great. I think we need to rethink the system and learn to live with less and work for ourselves more. Entrepreneurship and austerity by necessity. We also have to stop expecting others to provide for our happiness. My happiness is MINE. I choose it or I don’t choose it. No job will ever get in the way of my happiness. I won’t allow it.

VCV, I’ve an IQ of 140. So what? University is a scam. $ for a paper and 4 yrs of internment in their liberalist prison. Dropped out of the BEST university in the province when I realized I hadn’t learned a thing from the people around me. I don’t make big bucks without that paper but I’m happier than you. Plus I’m debt free and have some $ in my pocket. That puts me in the 8% richest in the world. You got debt? Your enslaved. I’d say not completing my “higher education” was the smartest thing I ever did.

VCV, somebody’s got to scrub the toilets of the world. Without grunt work you don’t have any of the pretty things you art, music, literature loving people have. If everyone was an artist/musician/litgrit then who makes the food you eat? who mops the blood and vomit at the hospital so you don’t slip? who digs the ditch for your septic/sewer so your sh’t can be disposed of?
Sarc/ I guess that last question is irrelevant since your just full of sh’t. Get real, grab a shovel and DO something with yourself.

Lazarus was in heaven with Abraham. Did you forget that part of the Bible? The Rich Man saw him from hell and asked for a little water, and for Lazarus to warn his brothers about hell. His request was denied.

God bless. I meant God bless.

Condolences for your loss, Go bless you and yours during this time as your father is welcomed home. Baking bread.
Yes. RCMP are now suddenly judges and lawmakers and no one does squat but offer a 2 year amnesty. If the government doesn't intervene we are in trouble because that will just encourage further arbitrary reclassification of any gun they feel threatened by. And good point re: what would happen if Americans were ever required to go through the PAL process. I would buy tickets for that.

Or stampeding cattle.
Or goats. Sheep. Piggies. Wait… there are a lot of animals with hooves.

1. US satellite hacked/faulty
2. China complicit
3. Russia busy, bought off?, doesn’t care, in Ukraine
4. WHO is on that plane that is important enough to kidnap by suspiciously over-qualified pilot and co-conspirators? Is anyone that important?
5. Got a better theory…. WHAT is in the baggage/shipping that would be important enough to divert an entire flight??
6. EMP theory posted already has merit but dunno….
7. Pilot over-experience is a total red flag that something is up. Everyone makes mistakes but disappearing planes???
I got dibs on theory #5. Something is in that baggage/cargo area. Gold? Weapons? Whatchagot?
Yeah, I heard about the EMP thing, too.
However, I heard someone in the "secret world" explain that the way EMP is used (how and with what), it wouldn't work on the outside of the plane, as aircraft are built to deal with man-made or natural occurrences.
