Well, you know, Ed, I just think it's irresponsible of him. Look, the real heroes from Iraq, in my unit, were the men who carried me to saftey, risking their own lives to save mine. You know, the real heroes are walking foot patrols in Afghanistan right now, and there are real heroes laying in their hospital beds in VA hospitals and military hospitals across this nation. And really, for Mr. Walsh to denigrate military service, uh, is very insulting because he's using it for his own political gain and our 23 million veterans have done more in one day in uniform than he's done for this country.
Congressman Joe Walsh told a town hall in Illinois that he believes a true hero doesn't talk about their military service. He went on to say that that is all his opponent for his congressional seat, Tammy Duckworth, talks about. Tammy, a double amputee, reacts to Joe Walsh's comments.
