Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Marine Cpl. Matthew Bradford

Don’t let the scum floating on the top convince you that America has gone rotten. Here‘s what the scum is floating on:

He has no legs and no eyesight, but Marine Cpl. Matthew Bradford has four more years of military service ahead of him after becoming the first blind double-amputee to re-enlist.

The rifleman was injured in January 2007 in Iraq when a roadside bomb exploded right under him, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

But after years at the Center for the Intrepid, a privately funded, cutting-edge rehabilitation center, Bradford, 23, has learned to walk with prosthetic limbs and navigate without his vision, and he only regrets that he can’t return to combat duty in Iraq, the paper reported.

If Cpl. Bradford doesn’t whine and sponge off Big Government, there is zero excuse for anyone to.
