Apparently the Obama people are having trouble with the word :"combat". Master Sgt Wheeler was killed in action against an armed enemy of the United States. This is a Master Sgt, nearly 20 years in the Army, kind of guy who knows all the answers, an old pro, it's not some 18 year old private who doesn't know enough to come in out of the rain. Sgt Wheeler knew what he was doing.
Let the Dem pencil necks quibble about words. I mourn the loss of an American fighting man.
