I won't even comment on your misinformed and clueless statements regarding the Iraq War. Just remember that the Democrat party saw the same information that President Bush saw and they voted to pass the War Powers authorization. End of subject.

Per your comments about "doing" the Sgt. Major-very disrespectful. If he looks "ten years older" it is most likely due to his heavy responsibilities involved in being a tough leader of hardcore Marines. He got where he is through hard work and great leadership. I don't need to know anything about him to know that. You don't make this rank in the US Marines unless you Have It.

It seems rather disrespectful to make sexual comments regarding the Sgt. Major. How about a big "job well done" for a man who is obviously very good at what he does.

He represents the valley well.

Also research the trans pacific partnership too, it's not law yet, but Obama and the owners of this country have been working on this since 2008, it's described as the biggest most egregious power grab by corporations ever!

I was in Lee's class at WPHS and I really had a crush on him. He was so cute and coy but I knew under his exterior was a real man. This proves it and makes me want him again. I will say, however, he looks about ten years older than the rest of our class. Lee is a very intelliget man and I am guessing the premature aging is from his realization that his efforts supported a bunch of lies that led to the deaths of thousands of arab civilians, helped to end the lives unnecessarily of a group of young people who believed Bush's lies and generally did nothing to support the words of peace our savior Jesus Christ tried to teach us. I'd still do him, though.

Many thanks to Sgt. Major Bonar for your service.

I can tell you that making Sgt. Major in the Marine Corps or Army is tough. Making Command Sgt. Major is even tougher. Getting promoted to Command Sgt. Major over an entire theater means that you are one bad ass dude.

The NCO corps is the backbone of the US military and it is the PRIMARY reason why our soldiers, sailors and marines are so effective.

There is no affirmative action at these higher enlisted levels. You make these top ranks, especially in the Marines, because you are a true leader.

Wheeling should be proud to have Sgt. Major Bonar as a native son.
