David Sutherland
Rank and Organization: Colonel, United States Army.

Donald Felt
Rank and Organization: Command Sergeant Major, United States Army.

For conspicuous patience and exercise of uncommon restraint: Colonel David Sutherland and Command Sergeant Major Donald Felt distinguished themselves by standing fast and maintaining proper military decorum in the face of a furious and unrelenting Bullshit Barrage in Baqubah, Iraq on on 16 December 2006. Colonel Sutherland’s and Command Sergeant Major Felt’s extraordinary devotion to duty under the most difficult of circumstances are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon themselves, the First Cavalry Division and the United States Army.

  2. You know what? That just pisses me off… the man obviously has a death wish. Just sayin’.

  3. Well, you know what they say Jimbo … “There’s strong. And then there’s ‘Army Strong.'”

  5. “Butt stroke to the head, MOVE!”

    This would have been a good time to demonstrate how “non-motivated, stupid military-type” gentlemen and ladies are capable of protecting those who cut and run. Instead, they preformed far more brilliantly than any of their civilian counterparts, exercising restraint and the good behavior typical of a saint. I, however, was a paratrooper, and never rose above the rank of Sergeant.

  6. I will say this much. John Kerry takes the dork factor to a whole new level.

  7. Can’t wait to hear the Dork’s made-up stories about his heroics while in the Iraq war. Wonder if he got a lucky hat?

  8. Did anyone notice if dorkbutt tripped or something while he was there? He might want another purple heart or something.
    And to think that after seeing these guys, he went to Syria. That’s respect.

  9. I can see him sitting by a lamp shade in a damp, dark room writing a brave letter home: I’ve come here to help my fellow man as best I can; to perhaps provide something for them to remember and hold on to, and get them through to the next day or maybe even the next week. But everywhere I look, there is only apathy and averted eyes. These poor souls have been completely ruined with this hideous endeavor we call Operation Iraqi Freedom…..

  10. Let’s just take a good look at this picture, shall we? The Colonel and the Sargeant Major are standing there with no cover, hard or otherwise, and just in their BDU shirts. Dingus and company show them how brave they are by showing up in helmet, extra thick body armor etc., and make no attempt to even BEGIN to remove any of it until obviously they were inside. I mean, you can’t even say “Well, they made them wear it on the chopper,” since if that was the case, he could have taken it off and left it with the chopper.

    Showing everyone once again the bravery that carried him through all three months of combat in Vietnam and earned him the right to give himself the medals that got him out.

    What a putz…and to think he is going to run again, just like the pretty boy he thought would help him get into office.

  11. That picture should be a caption fest-

    Caption: Jon Carry: Fellas, First of all I want to say that I feel like I’m back home with mah Brothas- second, I’m afraid that I’ve got some bad news for you- I’ll go slow so you can follow along- mind you, this is comming from Congress and not me- Congress wants you to know that they don’t trust you to fight this war effectively, and they feel that they are more better equipped to handle this war themselves. What say you? But make it quick, I’ve got a meeting with President Asad tomorrow at noon.”

    Colonel: You folks fill in the rest.
