Amazing that there are so many stories like this that the mainstream media ignore.

He gave his life saving a child who was not his own. He is a hero regardless of his occupation. Unfortunatley there is no controversy in this story so it will not get that much media play.

The mainstream media will only report stories that will make them money. What a hero.

This day in age with the term hero being so misrepresented I must say that anyone whether solider or not who gives of themselves in a manner like this should never be forgotten.

While I would normally agree with the terrible coverage of mainstream media. Can you please define what you see as mainstream?

What I believe is sad is that the media will forget about this individual too quickly!
