Alive, Doctor, and Fire: ROY P BENAVIDEZ MEDAL OF HONOR MSG US ARMY VIETNAM PH AUG 5 1935 NOV 29 1998 BELOVED HUSRAND FATHER&GRANDPA @Remembebary Medal of Honor recipient, Master Sergeant Roy Benavidez. He had 37 puncture wounds, exposed intestine, broken jaw, and eyes caked in blood. He was pronounced dead until he spit in the face of a doctor who was zipping him up in a body bag Six Hours in Hell - On May 2, 1968, a 12-man Special Forces patrol, which included nine Montagnard tribesmen, was surrounded by an NVA (North Vietnamese Army) infantry battalion of about 1,000 men. Benavidez heard the radio appeal for help and boarded a helicopter to respond. Armed only with a knife, he jumped from the helicopter carrying his medical bag and ran to help the trapped patrol. Benavidez "distinguished himself by a series of daring and extremely valorous actions... and because of his gallant choice to join voluntarily his comrades who were in critical straits, to expose himself constantly to withering enemy fire, and his refusal to be stopped despite numerous severe wounds, saved the lives of at least eight men." At one point in the battle an NVA soldier accosted him and stabbed him with his bayonet. Benavidez pulled it out, yanked out his own knife, killed him and kept going, leaving his knife in the NVA soldier's body. After the battle, he was evacuated to the base camp, examined, and thought to be dead. As he was placed in a body bag among the other dead in body bags, he was suddenly recognized by a friend who called for help. A doctor came and examined him but believed Benavidez was dead. The doctor was about to zip up the body bag when Benavidez managed to spit in his face, alerting the doctor that he was alive. Benavidez had a total of 37 separate bullet, bayonet, and shrapnel wounds from the six-hour fight with the enemy battalion - On February 24, 1981, President Ronald Reagan presented Roy P. Benavidez with the Medal of Honor. Reagan turned to the press and said, "If the story of his heroism were a movie script, you would not believe it - Thank you Benavidez for your heroism, your selfless sacrifices you made in Vietnam shall never be forgotten. Rest in Peace!🇺🇸

Children, Ken, and Sorry: 2-i samer Alhato Just now When black folks have several children, they're called irresponsible. When white people do, it's called "19 kids and counting". When Muslims are accosted for having the ABILITY to marry more than one wife, they're called misogynistic. When white people do it, it's called "Sister wives". When various cultures of brown folks around the world have arranged marriages, they are shamed for it. When white people do it, it's called "Married at first sight".

The mother is called a clown car. If they’re middle or lower class, they’re called trailer trash and the incest jokes start flying. <br/></p> <p>In what damn universe do you live in where polygamy is celebrated in western culture at ALL? Mormons are mocked relentlessly for it, the women get called horrible things, the men are treated like abusers. <br/></p> <p>What in the FUCK is “married at first sight”?</p> <p>Want to know what ignorance is? Gather your views and opinions on society from trashy reality TV (which is also mocked and considered garbage. No one but idiots think this kind of reality TV bullshit reflects the standards of society at large) <br/></p> </blockquote> <p>“tlc is white privilege” i’m sorry what the fuck<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>It’s like this person completely missed the part where TLC is the modern-day version of a carnival freak show. They make shows out of people specifically because there’s something weird about them, not because it’s a reflection of normal society.</p>
