I doubt you apply the same judgement to your fellow Marines in the same predicament - I'm sure you classify them as heroes.
    I pisses me off to be put on some kind of pedestal because I got hit by a roadbomb. Here in the South especially, war vets are given "special treatment" because our roots run deep with fighting.

    The day I got hit by the bomb I was on patrol with my two buddies. I honestly just got lucky because I wasn't the one that stepped on it, I just was in the line of shrapnel as it went off. The two beside me, one got both his legs blew off, and the other took shrapnel to the juggular.

    When I come to, the first thing I noticed is I was deaf; I couldn't hear a damn thing but his awful ringing in my ears. I crawled over to Josh, who was the first one I saw, and drug him to the ditchbank. I watched him take his last three breaths while looking in my eyes while I was working on him. It was only after that, before I blacked out, I looked down and saw my leg in pieces

    I'm not a hero for getting hit by a roadbomb, I was lucky. I wasn't a hero for performing cpr on a downed Marine, I just did what anyone would do in that situation.

    Anyway, sorry about all that. I kind of went into "black hawk down" mode there for a bit

    Dude, you can't avoid being coated with the same brush you use on your fellow Marines. Understand what I'm getting at?

    OK, I've never been a big fan of the Simpson's, but when it did become Family Guy-esque? It's clearly time for the show to die if this is what it has to resort to to stay relevant.

    Don't feel you have to apologise talking about things like that man.

    The Simpson's has been poor for a good many seasons.
