    The CIA released and posted footage of a Medal of Honor action (which has only ever happened once to my knowledge.)

    USAF Master Sergeant John Chapman and an attached SEAL team were ambushed while trying to recover the body of another SEAL. He was shot 16 times and fought to the death while trying to save other Fast Response Teams landing.

    Small detail; TSgt John Chapman, USAF was attached to the SEAL team, it wasn’t ‘his’ team.

    I won’t go into the detail of how he was left there by the team.

    All of the actions of USN REMFs are dispicable too.

    And this is why we stand, take off our headgear, and place our hand over our heart for the National Anthem.
