I got a chance to meet up with a couple of amazing soldiers today, Corp Michael Moynihan of Shelbyville, TN and Spl Ryan Craft of Colorado Springs, CO. They are great friends to one another and both fully admit and brag about being rednecks, enjoying four wheeling, shooting and drinking Jack. In fact they've created their own signature drink: Jack, Puckers and sweet and sour mix..."It's the worlds greatest drink!"
Truth be told, they are both extreme soldiers. Corp Moynihan recently won the Silver Star for what is now being touted as the Battle of Shal.
What they've learned here in Afghanistan are coping skills. Both have seen their friends die and both are heroes.
