I can't help but think that most military personnel are Republican and they're out there dying
I Salute you Medal of Honor recipient SSG David Bellavia. As a Iraq War veteran myself I honor to have you as our torch bearer for all of the Iraq War veterans (03-11), that are out there living and deceased. You nailed it when you referenced the good and bad war analogy(7:50) and that the Iraq War was the BAD one, War in Afghanistan the GOOD one.I have come to an understanding that many Americans don’t fully understand what the real military members did there and why they did it. It’s simple answer and SSG Bellavia said it, we were following orders by the President of the United States. Thank You SSG David Bellavia (MOH) and your selfless service for your country and fellow veterans. 🇺🇸
Saddam was gassing everyone
GOD BLESS SGT.Semper Fi from an ole Marine.
PROPOGANDA. With all do respect to Staff Sgt. David Bellavia, within what nation were you fighting, and for what reason were you fighting within said nation?
I am in awe of Sgt. Bellavia, aside from being a true AMERICAN HERO he is a very humble and well spoken person. Question: did Sgt. Bellavia appear on any other network?
snappy salute to you staff sergeant! ooah! – from a retired US Navy sailor.
Thank you David.
That's what a real hero looks like.
oh brother… ya lost me when you claimed to be the greatest generation… be humble my man…
I did my time in 1991, 2001, 2003-04, 2005-06, 2010-11 in the Middle East as a grunt. This was a great interview. I was proud to serve with all those who went to the sand box. 🇺🇸
The terms empathy and sympathy are often confused and with good reason. Both of the words deal with the relationship a person has to the feelings and experiences of another person.Sympathy : You feel bad for them … but you don’t know what it is like to be in their shoes. Unlike sympathy, empathy refers to the capacity or ability to imagine oneself in the situation of another, experiencing the emotions, ideas, or opinions of that person.
Bellavia thanks God .. Amein .. the highest honour of all ..
Stay humble brother, Ty for your service
The Democrats want to allow illegal immigrants to have the same benefits and privileges as these brave men who sacrifice everything for American citizens.
Sorry as an OIF 1 Iraq Vet I'll say the Iraq war was a dumb war, it was conducted on falsehoods, it drew valuable resources away from the fight with AlQuaeda and quite literally probably allowed Bin Laden to evade us for so long…..EVERY IRAQ VET should be proud, David Bellavia SHOULD be Proud, but it doesn't mean that I/we/any American can't criticize the reason and the way the Iraq war was conducted.
Oh and I'm not tell my kid to go sign up either, so he can risk his life in illegal wars in the mideast for war profiteers..
Awarding this great American warrior the MEDAL OF HONOR is long over due and gives me a lump in my throat with enormous pride to be an American. Thank you for your service SSG Bellavia.
Young people today have no understanding of the warriors that volunteer to fight for the freedoms they enjoy. Iraq/Afghanistan, right or wrong demonstrates the heart and mind of the millions of soldiers that have given their lives to defend Democracy. They will at some point in their lives the fallacy of the Marxist ideology they been indoctrinated with in the pathetic colleges they attend.
Can an American please define who their enemy is and why their enemy is their enemy? It seems everyone is their enemy.
we never got so much as a think you when we came home it took years for people to say THANK YOU we fought the bad WAR
at leas you got a medal they were not giving them out in 1965 or 1966 because it was just a police action, try telling that to all the families that lost love ones at that time. I'm a combat vet I carried the M60 in the jungle I know war I have been there
when I came home in 1966 the VFW would not let me become a member they said it was not a war , the first week we were there war lost 47 men it's only a police action when it would rain our fox holes would feel up with water we had to sleep in it , every war is bad but don't say you fought the bad war
He is without a doubt one impressive individual, but to call him the Audie Murphy of our generation is just plain wrong. Murphy lied about his age and went to war when he was 17. By the time he was 20 he had been awarded every medal that our military has as well as the French equivalent to the Medal of honor…
Sgt David Bellavia, You remind me of so many of the Staff Sergeants I served under in the US Army (Germany, 1968 -70). You are a terrific guy and I thank you for your outstanding service
Vietnam was bad war I fought for my life for almost a year in 1965 &1966 at lest you know were your enemy was on the other hand we had to go in the jungle to find them and when we did we lost a lot of men ,you had the support of America we did not you had up to date equipment , you had a place to sleep when you were at camp we would stay in the jungle some times yup to 3 to 4 weeks that was a bad war no Sr. we fought the bad war
