    If it was awarded by Obama, he should’ve declined it.

    • William Norvell

      You can not just declined it just because of obama

      • $27320779

        That’s more than enough reason to decline it!

        • Shawn Smith

          Another person who has no idea! The president just presents the award to the person recieving the Medal of Honor! You have to be a total douche bag to to suggest he decline such a selfless award because of your dislike for the president….it shows how small minded you are!

          • $27320779

            So says the guy happily watching our country be decimated…

          • Shawn Smith

            You have no idea..lol

      • James Tomlin

        It’s already been done by a father for his deceased son

    • Vain Freeman

      The new American spirit, a young man puts his soul, life and liberty on the line in his duty to country and demonstrates a high level of commitment to his country, duty and fellow service men/women and instead of the focus on rewarding and acknowledging his dedication and sacrifice, you would instead focus on stupid ideology and dislike for a president! Sick individual!

      • $27320779

        The young man put his life on the line for this country and receives an award from a man who is putting this country’s life on the line for corruption. Accepting an award from Obama is accepting it from a man who completely insults this young man’s efforts. Tell me again why patriotism deems me a sick individual when I don’t want this young man to be insulted for his efforts.

        • Gregory Eastman

          Mainly because you are an obvious imbecile or just a good actor.

        • Terence Goldsmith

          Bahamapapa. To Spammy69 and Company…I wonder how much you guys have put on the line for your country…other than to whinge and to whine…I have and my family have …going back over one hundred and fifty years with military background. Lost family in WW1 , Korea, Burma. I lost two uncles in WW11…one at Dunkirk and one at Normandy…just lost my son…Sargeant in the British Army fighting your fucking war ( Started by Bush)…So I think I have earned the right to say… shut the fuck up…cause you just a prick of the highest order!
          Bahamapapa

          • Shawn Smith

            Terence, I appreciate all that your family has done and I am sorry for the loss of your son. I personally do not agree with this war and how long this shit has dragged on. We need to get our soldiers out, period! Every time I hear of anyone in the military whether its from the USA, GB, or any other country that are fighting overseas, it hurts my heart to know we lost another brave soldier! Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart and all the sacrifices you, and your family have made.

          • $27320779

            Considering I oppose Obama, it should be obvious that I am one of those who isn’t opposed to training and doing my part to support this country. I put in 10 yrs as a navy nukie back in the 90s, my brother is 11 years into the army and we have relatives who died in the towers on 9/11.
            Add to that you post a whine with a sob story as if you are trying to act superior.
            Thanks to the Constitution, which I actually happen to love and respect, I have the right to say shut your ass, it’s talking too much.

          • James Tomlin

            You can shut up to , others have lost people too . Incliuding my family. I seen a bit of death in the military while I ws in there too.

      • James Tomlin

        you are the sick one supporting a Marxist President.

      • quincyman

        Your absolutely right. I don’t care if someone like Osama bin laden gave it to him. he deserved it.

    • quincyman

      NO, He should not have declined it. It was more than well deserved. I don’t care who presented it. He earned this great honor, he should have it.

  • wesleykimler

    The Medal Of Honor was awarded by The President Of The United States of America. However you might feel about Obama, show respect for the office he holds and BEHAVE YOURSELF.

    • Guest

      I will not show respect for the man or the office, because the man represents the office. The man in the office has no class, no character and no concern for me. Respect is not simply given. It has to be earned. Obama has done NOTHING to earn one ounce of respect.

      • Gregory Eastman

        Another dipsht teabagger living in an alternate world

        • James Tomlin

          And you are a dip fleabagger, get it.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Wow! that really was the best you can do. Every post i see of yours screams idiot.

          • James Tomlin

            LOL.

          • Gregory Eastman

            And I’m guessing not a vet

          • James Tomlin

            I got out in 1973 , I come from a military family that taught me that communism , marxism , and socialism were wrong , and should be stopped . You call us teabaggers I call you guys gutless fleabaggers (Dawgs).LOL.

          • Gregory Eastman

            I call you lying idiots who really don’t have a clue. As for your service I’d have to see your dd214 as you just seem to stupid. Marxist boy!

          • James Tomlin

            Like I care if a fleabagger believes me , you’re just a gutless wonder that worships your marxist obama .

          • Gregory Eastman

            Just like I thought another lying chickenhawk.. Brave talking coward who thinks using big words makes him look like he knows what he’s talking about. You are such a joke you should hide in shame instead of flaunting your stupidity

          • James Tomlin

            lol.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Cowards are the liars such as yourself who claim service they never made. You are a perfect example why I get such a laugh out of the Moron right

          • Shawn Smith

            Gregory, you might as well stop because you cant fix stupid! Obviously his daddy should have pulled out!

          • James Tomlin

            Coward

          • Gregory Eastman

            That dog of your looks a little molested, I’m sure your quite familiar with fleas

          • oldload

            according to Urban Dictionary Fleabagger

            Any member of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement or it’s derivatives in other states and cities.

            The Democratic Party was desperate to have some grass roots response to the Conservative ‘Tea Party’ but sadly all they ended up with was those filthy Occupy Wall Street ‘Fleabaggers’.

            2. Fleabagger

            New name for Democrat losers…Fleebaggers! Just like fleas, the? only way they can survive is to live off a host. That pretty much sums up the whole Democratic Party these days. How can I best live off of someone else?

            Human parasite. Cries like a child, creates havoc and organizes and participates in public protests when only asked to contribute their “fair share” freely. Litterally freaks out when their Mob Rule mentality is threatened. (ie: their “collective bargaining rights” are stripped).

            Union leaders, Union workers, Democratic Congressmen, Democratic Senators, Democratic Govenors, Democratic Activists, Liberal Activists, Democratic Presidents, robbers, theives, gangs, gang members, community organizers, thugs, Mob Bosses, mob members, mafias, ACORN, Acorn thugs(workers) and practically anyone who is “PRO-Organized Labor.

            3. Fleabagger

            1. Fleabagger is a term applied to Democratic Party elected officials who having lost the majority in an election, leave their home state and hide out in undisclosed roadside motels in neighboring states for weeks in order to avoid detection and having to return work. In so doing they seek to thwart the democratic political process by denying the quorum necessary for the passage of certain legislation such as state budget bills.

            2. The term is also applied to their unelected supporters who stay behind in the home state to occupy public buildings, often squatting in sleeping bags on the floor, in order to obstruct the democratic process. Fleabaggers, who are unfailingly union members, can stay away from their jobs for days without fear of dismissal.

            1. A group of Fleabagger Democratic Wisconsin senators turned tail for the Illinois border where they remained in hiding for weeks.

            2. The stench coming from the floor of the capitol rotunda was at it’s peak in early morning as Fleabaggers from the state public unions awoke to prevent Republican senators from reaching the senate chamber.

            4. Fleabaggers

            The unwashed, chronically jobless, anti capitalist protesters that spread disease along with uneducated rhetoric in a theater of the absurd. Basically a filthy Che shirt wearing version of a Teabagger, if the teabaggers were allergic to soap.

            Sounds like someone who would employ crassless words for logic.Words do mean something. Logic means more. Back to your Troll hoe. Just know you are not a conservative, you use pharses that would normally be attributed to conservative leaning people.
            Are all these big words confusing you.

      • oldload

        That most likely reflects your mothers feelings, also.

    • James Tomlin

      The Character of the President is what makes up that office while he is in there , the man is a traitor to the constitution , Shame on you for not seeing that. Are you a marxist .

      • Gregory Eastman

        Like the character you exhibit lying about military service and being a big bad martial arts instructor. Let me guess astronaut too. And maybe secret agent.

  • Melissa Sloban

    HELLO>>>>>>> It is the CONGRESSIONAL Medal of Honor. It is awarded by congress and just presented by the president.

    • UncleAl

      Sorry Melissa, but it is not the CONGRESSIONAL Medal of Honor. It is often called that, but that is a misnomer.

    • James Tomlin

      Presented by a marxist , this should not be.

    • Shawn Smith

      WRONG….It is submitted and approved through the soldiers chain of command…then it hasa to be approved through a special act of Congress and then is presented by the President of the United States. There is a second way a person can be nominated and that is by a member of Congress..
      It is not called the Congressional Medal of Honor… it is called the Medal of Honor!

  • Shane Leiser

    Through my affiliation with the Patriot Guard Riders, I met Ty Carter last month in Dallas at a veteran’s event. This young man is a class act!!

    • James Tomlin

      I disagree with any soldier that accepts a medal from a Marxist.

      • Dagger

        Obama isn’t a Marxist he is a Fascist. He uses the guise of “socialism” as a control mechanism and to gain popularity. If you notice, the only ones who benefit from his policies are Big Business. Insurance companies are making tons off money of Obamacare, they get to raise the cost for us while not lowing their profit margin, the stimulus package went all to the top 1% and the corporations such as Ford, GM and Banks. He appointed Michael Taylor head of the FDA which benefits pharmaceutical companies and Monsanto/Dupont. The wars we continue to promote benefit Oil Companies, Halliburton/General Electric and other weapons manufactures. The inflation benefits banks, “The Green Laws” benefit Green Construction Contracting Companies. It is Fascism not Marxism. Please learn the difference before you post more internet propoganda. Obama is more like Hilter/Mussolini than Stalin/Marx. Also, before you believe Republicans aren’t Fascist too. We haven’t been “Capitalists” in over 100 years. Capitalists require CAPITAL and all we have is debt. Both parties are at fault for the destruction of this country and until people realize that, we will continue to vote this country into the ground.

      • Bruce Hennequin

        Give it a rest dude…obviously you don’t like obamoron. And many, many of us do not like him either and believe he is very bad for this nation but the military doesn’t have a choice as to the president. How about you stop putting our military down for working with the ‘Commander in Chief’ and YES, that term is used loosely but they do NOT have a choice…ask Lt. Col. Danny McKnight about Clinton…no choice in his choice but I still respect that man greatly and his service to this nation and his troops.

      • Jason Royal

        you are a moron, your medal is recommended and sent through your chain of command. He just signs it. You would not accept the medal because your ass would have never been there in the first place.

        • James Tomlin

          You sound pretty stupid , telling people where they have been and haven’t been , I got out in 1973 and I don’t brag about what I have done or haven’t done . I have only said under no conditions would I accept a medal from a marxist , I believe your ignorant butt would though , because you don’t know ant better . A very ignorant genneration is being raise , just like the Communists want them.

          • Jason Royal

            Really there buddy….you are slamming a hero in his moment of recognition. Talk about ignorant…and if that is your generation then shove it you are no different than the protestors of the 60s and 70s slamming people coming home from the war. I doubt you fought in anything….in fact dollars to doughnuts if you were in the military it was a supply guy in the airforce at best….

          • James Tomlin

            Oh so you believe that all that served in the military in time of war that actually didn’t hit the front lines were cowards I guess ,,,lol You are way to stupid to understand where I’m coming from anyway .The point is to stand against Marxism and to not let it share in the honors of brave soldiers . I will not discuss the military with someone that does not know anything about freedom and the Constitution and what it stands for. Accepting Medals and awards from a Marxist is not acceptable , however you are much to ignorant , and i’m being nice , to understand what I mean. Sounds like you voted for the Marxist.

          • Jason Royal

            Absolutely not, I know a whack job when I see one. I guess everything the Army has given me in the last little while I should give back to placate the sniveling, insecure fool that you are. I truly wish you could expound your intelligence to me in person and then I would show you how much of an ass whipping that insecure superiority complex you have with it would buy you. Fuck you and your little dog too you piece of shit. Who the fuck poses like that in a photo anyway other than some insane person?

          • James Tomlin

            I’m a pretty good fighter, been teaching people how to fight with their bare hands since the 70′s as a martial arts instructor , I might not be as easy to whip as you think . I was well trained in the military in small arms too,,,lol. I ‘d be willing to bet at 59 I’m in better shape than you are,,,,lol. An inferior like a liberal will always stoop to the level of cussing and making fun of people when they are out done . You certainly sound like a liberal , you don’t even get the point . You care about yourself certainly not the future of the nation . I was taught by my father an Army Captain to respect the Free republic , Obama is a marxist or have you noticed ,

          • Gregory Eastman

            LIAR you are some armchair MORON. I would love to see your skills in person.

          • James Tomlin

            You are just a wussie , period , I could care less if you believe what I say . A net rambo you are girly man .

          • Gregory Eastman

            All that for such a moron who claims he served and ets’d at 19 after all that training,
            . you must have gotten the fast track

          • Jason Royal

            make me laugh….I’d take that bet…great shape and martial artist and all…. I bet you play with samarai swords as well….do you pose with them and your dog? I am conservative….but I have no tolerance for bullshit like yours…..

          • Gregory Eastman

            Yesterday he got out in 1974, He’s a liar

          • James Tomlin

            I said 73 dufus,

          • Gregory Eastman

            You also said you are 59 and got out in 1973 hoe did you manage to ETS at 19. Let me guess you enlisted at 15 LIAR like most rightwing losers.

          • James Tomlin

            I got an honorable discharge and I have nothing to be ashamed of , I will not discuss my service record with your pansy behind , I wish you could see the skills I still possess too girly man. LOL, Well at least I now know you are a wussie liberal that explains the attacks . Well folks this is how the Obama gat folks act . Attacking with no substance about them . Well I actually went on more with your immature butt than I usually do , but you did expose your stupidity , I will not respond to your BS anymore ,,,lol, what a loser. I won’t even read any of your pathetic comments so you will be talking to yourself .

          • Gregory Eastman

            LIAR, Read your posts Moron. Typical rightwing idiot Doing what they acuse others of doing.”I wont discuss my service”, Course not because you are a liar and know you will get caught like all liars.

          • Gregory Eastman

            I bet you don’t even know what a Marxisr is. MORON! and a liar

          • James Tomlin

            Here wussy , wussy , wussy .I have some silk drawers I bought specially for your feminine self. Hows the gay lifestyle suiting you these days.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Wow are you simple. I am so burned Chickenhawk liar. I got out of the service at 19 after soooooo much training. LIAR

          • oldload

            He did spell it right. 2 point there.

          • oldload

            Don’t be to rough. He was probably Coast Guard. Never got out of the Great Lakes.

          • Gregory Eastman

            yesterday he told me he got out in 1974, LIAR!

          • oldload

            I truly believe when someone says, ” I don’t brag”, probably means they haven’t done much. The Medal of Honor is a class act. I have met some of the them on my tours to Iraq and Afghanistan and, honestly, I would have a beer with them with or without the MoH on their chest. We are honoring the Soldier who earned it, not the Pri*k that delivers it. Back to your Hobbit hole, you have no clue.

      • TheKentuckyKid

        And Dumbass of the Internet goes to, James Tomlin, way to go dipshit. Fuck our politicians if you feel that way (I do) but support the troops fighting for us.

        • James Tomlin

          Fighting for Us ??????, Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us of the misuse of the military thru the military industrial complex , it has been done in every conflict since he mentioned it . Your insults don’t bother me , the biggest difference is I aint afraid to say them to faces , I aint a coward like you girly men . And if someone wants to swing ,,, lets go with it.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Lets go LIAR! I would love to see your face up close.

          • Alex Meisner

            James Tomlin is an inbred moron

      • Steven Neubauer

        TROLL!

  • UncleAl

    First, Sgt Carter EARNED this medal. The president who presented it to him has no reflection on him.
    These are awarded so rarely that in my 23 years of service never saw one, except on display behind glass.
    Second, it is actually NOT called the Congressional Medal of Honor. It is the Medal of Honor.

    • James Tomlin

      Presented by a Marxist ? are you blind.

      • Sherry Mitchell

        Please correct me if I’m wrong, but the president isn’t the one who decides who gets this…commanding officers do..the president just gets the honor of handing it over. That’s my understanding of the process so it’s not the president who matters…it’s the act that got them nominated for the medal. ( I could very well be wrong, so please excuse my blunder if I am)

        • James Tomlin

          The President being a marxist , I would not let him have the honor in presenting that to me . I love this country and for what the constitution stands for , Obama is not it and should not have that honor of presentation . That was the soldier’s call , my opinion is it was a bad call.

          • Sherry Mitchell

            I can see from all your comments that your hate is all that matters to you…that’s too bad…it will eat you up….I think the Soldier have EVERY right to accept this medal, no matter who handed it to him…for it comes from a GRATEFUL country! NOT the president

          • ChrisLR308

            The president does NOT put military personnel in for commendations. THAT is the responsibility of the commanding officer and from that point on the commendation goes through a number of screenings before it’s actually awarded.

          • pj4me

            My husband said the same thing. He is an ex-Green Beret Special Forces Paratrooper. We LOVE America, and we are patriots. He said if he were to be awarded that medal, and it had to be presented by the Muslim Marxist, he absolutely would NOT accept it! I agree with him. It’s an honor, but not presented by Obama — takes the whole meaning away from the exceptionalism of our blessed military and our blessed Nation. BO is truly an obamanation to this ONCE great country! Why he manages to hold his position is beyond me. Our Congress members must be more anti-American, and anti-Constitutional than we realize — the lot of them!

          • James Tomlin

            Thank YOU , people here that don’t know what’s going on criticize those that get it such as your husband . This country has been infiltrated by the Socialists calling themselves progressives . They own the Democrat party and are well on their way taking over the Republicans . The Bushites and those that think that way are Progressives . The Conservative patriots voice has been taken out of the picture , not enough have noticed that. We must stand against these progressives any time we can and tell the truth . Progressives , socialists , marxists and communists , it hasn’t been that long ago .I n my lifetime they were called the enemy , how soon the majority has forgotten due to indoctrination , Sad but true. Refusing a medal from a Siocialist , marxist , progressive or communist is news , and will be heard , accepting it is not.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Then your husband is a Moron. If you loved America as claimed you would get over losing the election TWICE and stop your spreading of lies. Muslim, he’s a Christian idiot.

          • Sherry Mitchell

            He isn’t a Christian, by any stretch of the imagination.

          • oldload

            Don’t matter what his religion is, he is destroying our country. DEAL WITH IT.

          • Sherry Mitchell

            Please thank your husband for his service and thank you for supporting him.

          • Gregory Eastman

            Mt opinion is take your worthless opinion and shove it. You forget he was elected and your imbecile lost get over it. Arent you the moron who claims military service but obviously sat home whining

          • James Tomlin

            LOL,

      • Alberta Chapman

        seems like you are blind. taking away the honor that should be shown to this young. man. SHAME ON YOUR INSULTS.

    • ChrisLR308

      Absolutely UncleAl!

    • UncleAl

      Military members do not choose their Commander in Chief. They do take a vow to serve and protect.

      Should all Medals of Honor be refused for an eight year period? I am no fan of Obama. That being said, disrespecting your Commander in Chief in that manner is highly unprofessional.

      I know who the lowest ranking member of the Air Force to ever receive the Medal of Honor was. I never learned which president presented it to him. It was never taught to us in professional military education, because the presenter is not important.

      • Alberta Chapman

        WELL SAID. It doesn’t matter who presents, it matters who receives.

  • Brady1

    I am always amazed when I see the comments by those who should know better. Here’s the deal people: This man earned the Medal of Honor. Those who say he should not have accepted it from this President make the rest of us conservatives look like fools. Do I think the president is a marxist? Yea, I do. Do I think he is a lousy president. Yup. Do I think that soldier should have accepted the medal. Absolutely. Also for the record, I am a life long conservative, have never voted democrat ever, and am a veteran.

    • James Tomlin

      I doubt you are a real Conservative , I bet you think Bush was a Conservative

      • Brady1

        You are entitled to your opinion. However, the topic is not Bush and it really is not Obama either. It is about a soldier who has earned the highest medal his country can bestow on him and how some people cannot get past that he accepted it from the current president. A real conservative accepts that there is no reason to deny a hero his day even if the spot light has to be shared with someone so unworthy. Now unless you want to see Mz. Hillary take the oath of office in a couple years you better figure out real quick that this battle will take a long time to win and who your allies are.

        • James Tomlin

          You are the one that has surrendered to Marxism , looking at it like it’s just an everyday obstacle to deal with. Obama loves people that think like you . This military is full of very ignorant minds towards communism , talk to the soldiers about what they don’t know. That’s part of the indoctrination into Marxism , Socialism , and Communism forget the truth and teach otherwise . You and those that think like you are a threat to freedom.

  • Caleb Richburg

    This is not an issue about The president I am not a huge fan of him either but I respect SSG. Carter and his actions at Keating that day it’s not about who gave him The Medal of Honor it’s about what that man did to earn it.

  • ginger

    Why are our troops even still there? Karzai is a puppet and the Afghans can kill each other as they have been doing for centuries…we got bin ladin and there is no reason for us to still be there.

  • Bruce Hennequin

    Are you people reading what you post??? He should not have accepted it because Obama presented it. He cannot refuse the ceremony as he would face military punishment. I don’t like the moron in office either but somehow, he was elected and re-elected and sits as the ‘Commander in Chief’ and to that, military members are under oath to obey….unless extreme circumstances. That being said, refusing it based on who presented it? That is like saying, “I wouldn’t take my driver’s license because I didn’t like the examiner.” Difference is that these men do extraordinary acts to earn the medal. Get over the idiot in office and be thankful that we still have men dedicated to protecting our nation. We screwed those who served in Vietnam when we didn’t support them because of disagreement with the ‘war’. They were following orders as are the troops in harms way today…you don’t have to like the sitting president or the order but you should respect the troop(s) for what they do and who THEY are.

  • hhjgmayo

    Do NOT make the mistake of lessoning this young mans sacrifice to his country or degrading his Honor, over what he has no control of. Honor it as it should be. He deserves ereryone’s praise & glory.

  • Shane Bradley

    Having my family lose a family memeber in this battle…and attending these funerals in Colorado Springs…and having heard the real story of this gun battle…OBAMA is NOT the focus here! These MEN ARE! Leave your political BULLSHIT out of it! Be humbled by the MEN that fought for you that day under horrific circumstances to the point their gun barrels literally melted from all the fighting. Focus on the real story…and not your pathetic need to make it about YOU!

    So why are we arguing about obama??? The man in the video above ^^^ has recieved the medal of honor hop off obamas dick and give a congrads to the soldier! I dont like obama either but thats americas problem you all care to much about drama and what somebody is doing wrong and not about how you can fix it

    Its incredible the disrespect discussions on this feed. SHAME ON YOU ALL. This medal is not rewarded on a whim. He earned it and You All are so disrespectful it doesn’t deserve a comment. Is no one monitoring this site? I say this–Congratulation Sir. Thank you for your service and bravery. I also wonder how many would have risked their lives as you did/ I not many. STOP DISRESPECTING EACH OTHER AND GET OVER YOUR SHORT COMINGS. DROP THE BS AND USE THIS SITE TO SAY SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE.
