Iraq War Veteran Wins Dancing with the Stars Championship

Okay, I know what you’re thinking… ‘Dancing with the Stars’?!

Hey! It’s the story of an Injured Iraq War Veteran who has come back to build a life for himself and build recognition of the sacrifices men and women have been willing to make to secure our freedom.

Without even watching the show I cast multiple votes for him including 15 on the night of the final dances (it was rather exhilarating, I felt like a Democrat must feel on election day).

Added to his previous and continuing Heroism is the fact that he derailed, at least temporarily, the introduction of another Kardashian into the American Pop Culture, and for that he has my undying gratitude. I even coined the #AntiKardashian hashtag on Twitter for rallying purposes.
