  1. has enough been taking by from this poor man?  I just watched last nights episode of the daily show, and he was talking about the VA.  The treatment by this government of veterans is absolutely disgusting – and then they trot this guy out like he is some sort of hero.   propoganda – he was a sucker before and now he is an even worse sucker now.

    he sacrificed not for freedom and democracy, but the corporate oligarchy. 

  2. A REAL HERO… I HAVE THE HIGHEST RESPECT FOR YOU Mr. Carpenter… Keep your head up and be strong in facing your new world MARINE!!!

  3. The fact CNN reported this makes me sick. From the owners of CNN to the anchors “reporters” and viewers, they would all spit on this man if it meant getting a dem in the White House.

    This man is a true hero and CNN should have ZERO right to report about him.
