HYDRATION IS CONTINUOUS

Salutations, I'm Anthony (AJ, Elder, Tony...I actually respond to pretty much anything if I know you're talking to me). A former Marine, I love gratuitous violence, small animals, and all things nerd.
On September 8, 2009, near the village of Ganjgal, Dakota Meyer learned that three U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman were missing after being ambushed by a group of insurgents. Defying orders and tempting fate, Marine corporal Dakota Meyer charged five times in a Humvee into heavy gunfire in the darkness of an Afghanistan valley to rescue comrades under attack from Taliban insurgents. Meyer eventually found all four dead and stripped of their weapons, body armor, and radios. With the help of some friendly Afghan soldiers, he moved the bodies to a safer area where they could be extracted. According to his Medal of Honor citation, during his search, Meyer “personally evacuated 12 friendly wounded, and provided cover for another 24 Marines and soldiers to escape likely death at the hands of a numerically superior and determined foe.”
Just look at his eyes.  That man has more burden than any of us can even begin to imagine.
