    For those of you that may remember, back in late 2003 my nephew, S/Sgt Josh Olson was gravely wounded near Mosul, Iraq. He subsequently lost his right leg at the hip, recovered and stayed in the Army and was later transferred to the Army Marksmanship Training Unit.

    In this month's Rifleman and American Hunter, there is a small article on his progress and what he has accomplished since the wound. I am very proud of him.

    GOD BLESS him and all of our servicemen. Too many today have no idea or appreciation for what they do for us. Bob

    I seldom log in and just read. But occasionally I see something I feel worth commenting on.

    Thank him for me and send my most sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas. I am so proud to see young American's as him.

    Eric: I saw his picture in the current Anerican Rifleman magazine. There isn't a day that goes by that our supper prayer includes our troops. It's easy to think about the economy these days, but we would have no economy without our brave servicemen. These are the true heroes. My father is a surviving WWII serviceman and my life has been blessed by him and I'm thankful for your nephew (and people like him) as that is one of our Christmas gift. Darrell

    That is amazing, hardcore, cool, awesome and any other good adjective you want to give it.

    As a former Marine, I like to razz Army guys but I have nothing I can even say...

    Great for him and for the USA.
