I met my old buddy, Staff Sgt. Saldivar, at the Rainbow Bar and Grille. He told me about his wounds received in Afghanistan. Shot and bleeding, almost dead, shot with a bullet that went through his body armor. Over a year in a hospital. Inspiring. Now, he teaches others how to be better soldiers. He is articulate. Charming. Modest. Hero.

To have my family and my Julie and to be an American. The ultimate. How can I ever be grateful enough to Col. Denman and Uncle Bob and the others who fought to keep me free? Ben Stein asks in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer, who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes cast him as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
