Soldier's Salute To The Media

Ah, a paratrooper rendering the proper salute to the press. It brings tears to my eyes...
Airborne! All the Way! Thanks http://www.blackfive.net/main/ for the picture! To be fair, the other side needs to be represented. There was a comment made that if this soldier was in, ' my platoon, I would have stommped his *&^%&*& guts. You don't do that to civilians. They pay your salary, even if you don't agree with who they are and what they do.' Still, maybe he was just adjusting his helmet!
Outstanding salute soldier...I agree with the above post, whoever said it has never been in the military. I'm retired disabled Gulf war vet he wouldn't have been touched in my platoon..
