a brilliant army major creates boy scouts troops in afghanistan

Talk about going beyond one's call of duty!

U.S. Army Maj. Glenn Battschinger is one extraordinary fellow!

The father of two boys was stationed in Afghanistan back in 2010 and was missing his kids and helping them with their Eagle Scout advancement.

To ease some of his homesickness, the Army Major decided to help some of the children whom he saw everyday.

After getting permission from his superiors, he gathered 40 of the boys around one day, and started to teach them the way of the Boy Scouts - including the program's pledge. He also got creative with the famous handkerchiefs that boy scouts wear by using material from parachute cords to replicate those knots!

Here's what Glenn Battschinger said:

The Brave Marine Who Covered A Grenade To Save His Friend Will Receive Medal Of Honor! Kyle Carpenter’s Heroic Story Will Leave You Speechless!

Filed under: PolitikInspirationHealthNews

There may be nothing more horrible than war. But this story of courage and bravery proves that even in the darkest of times, there is still so much good in the world.

Kyle Carpenter, now a Marine Corps veteran, is about to become the Marines' third Medal of Honor recipient since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is the highest combat valor award and it is not given to just anybody.

But after the sacrifice that Kyle made, there is no doubt that he’s earned it.

As a 21-year-old lance corporal, Carpenter intentionally covered an active grenade in order to save the life of his friend and fellow soldier, Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio. The blast nearly killed them both.

Carpenter lost his right eye, suffered a shattered jaw, and 30 breaks throughout his right arm. He also lost most of his teeth and still has scaring on his face from the shrapnel.

Eufrazio sustained damage to the frontal lobe of his brain and until recently, was unable to speak.

The Armed Forces initial investigation into what happened proved difficult. No one witnessed the blast, Eufrazio couldn’t talk and Carpenter said he couldn’t remember anything that happened due to trauma.

Filed under: AnglophiliaRoyals RoycePrince HarryGIFs

prince harry is not longer a helicopter pilot2

Hmm, could quitting his daredevil job be his way of preparing to settle down with a certain someone?!

Prince Harry has decided to end his three-year role as an Apache helicopter pilot and transition into a staff officer role at the headquarters in London!

He's trading in his helicopter for a desk?! How safe of him!

In his new role, Harry will be aiding in organizing "major commemorative events" which involve the army. He keeps his rank of Captain and will remain a Commissioned Officer in the Household Cavalry.

We wonder what sparked this sudden change?

Could he want settle down with his girlfriend Cressida Bonas?

Or maybe he just wanted to be close to Prince William & Kate Middleton and his nephew, Prince George!

Whatever sparked the change, we're sure he'll be happier being closer to his family AND his lady love!

This is just so awful!!

There are few things we love more than watching soldiers reunite with their dogs after coming home from deployment.

This is basically the opposite!

Brandon Harker came home from Afghanistan a few weeks ago and found out his 2-year-old Labrador Oakley was gone.

Filed under: Cuteness!DogAmazing

This looks like the most excited dog in the whole world!!

We seriously cannot get enough of these soldier/dog reuniting videos!

This video is unique though, instead of a solider coming home to reunite with his dog buddy, the dog was the one coming home!

Bailey the dog came back from Afghanistan and reunited with Staff Sgt. Kevin Brady.

The two bonded while on tour together in Afghanistan when the native pup began following around his unit.

When Staff Sgt. Brady came home, he was really missing his doggy friend. So he contacted Guardians of Rescue who raised $5,000 to send Bailey home to him!!

We are seriously just watching this video on repeat it's so ahmayzing!!

Check out the video (above) for the world's happiest dog!!

Retired Marine Reunited With The Dog Who Saved His Life!

Filed under: InspirationDogAmazing

Brad O'Keefe was a Marine Lance Corporal on duty in Afghanistan.

He was serving alongside his bomb-sniffing dog, Earl. The two were brothers in arms and the best of friends.

One day, while out on duty, Earl alerted O'Keefe and 13 of his troops to a nearby IED that exploded only moments after the warning.

If it weren't for Earl's warning, they might all have been killed.

The blast injured Earl and Brad, and they were both sent to separate rehabs, where Brad lost track of Earl.

Months later, Brad's sister set up a Facebook page called "Bring MWD Earl Home," in an attempt to find the doggy.

Well guess what… they did! Earl was working with the Rhode Island state police, and luckily, they were quick to reunite Brad and his pup!

Check out the video (above) to hear an ahmayzing story of two brothers in arms finally being reunited!
