A Hero Gives the Enemy the One Finger Salute!

This is the one finger salute given by a Marine whose 'job' is to dismantle IED's--He knew he had been had - when he saw the red wire running between his legs and knew that it was a trap---BOOM- the device had been set off-he was thrown into the air---his fellow Marines tore off his pants..found a lot of blood---he tried to move his legs---YES-they were moving!!! He refused to be stretchered to the helicptor---he wanted the enemy to know he could still walk--so he struggle up--lifted his arm ---gave the enemy the ONE FINGER SALUTE!!!
I introduce to you-Marine Gunnery Sgt. Michael Burghardt!!!!! :
