Hollywood CONTINUALLY depicts USA soldiers, veterans as heartless cruel killers. Really?
They are FAR from it.
A recent example from Daily Mail UK features this guy:
I wouldn't tangle with this guy, would YOU?!?! He's a USA Army Special forces guy in Afghanistan - and sure looks like one tough mother-f**er.
When he was out on patrol, something caught his eye. If he was a heartless cruel killer like Hollywood pushes (constantly in LOTS of movies), he wouldn't have batted an eye when he saw what was happening. This is what he did instead: he RESCUED a helpless being.
With the help of donations and Nowzad (a British dog rescue org): the puppy (Yakkul) he rescued made it out of the hell hole of Afghanistan back home to Valatie, NY.
I'll be praying this brave warrior with a kind heart makes it home safely after his tour(s) finish.
... and Hollywood be damned.
