He Was Turned To Steel…

If they are going to make a second sequel, it should be entitled Iron Man III: Afghanistan and it should star Marine Corporal Matt Garst.

Over at Three Beers Later, Richard has the full story, but here is a tease:

Few people survive stepping on an improvised explosive device. Even fewer walk away the same day after directly absorbing the force of the blast, but Garst did just that.

The next day Garst awoke with a pounding headache and was as sore as he’d ever been in his life.

“Just getting up from trying to sleep was painful,” he said.

But he saw no reason being sore should slow him down. He popped some ibuprofen and after a day of rest, Garst was back out on patrol, showing his Marines and the enemy that just like his resolve — Cpl Matt Garst is unbreakable.


Please do take the time to click here and read the full story.

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

Semper Fi!

    Thank God he made it. Quite a few of his brothers have not, recently. May G-d bless and keep all of them.

    That is one tough Marine. Well done! And thanks to him, and his fellow servicemen, for their service.
