    The Yanks used Sgt. Basilone MoH to sell war bonds until he requested to return as a DI and later to active duty.

    It's not a chook raffle, they didn't win them, they earned them.

    He's been a Corporal for a couple of years. The previous pic of him as a lance corporal getting his MG is from 2006/7. Prior to that he was a Corporal in 3RAR before doing selection.

    Holy moly......He's a frickin' man mountain......I'll bet you a pint he was born and raised on a farm.....a farm the size of Rhode Island...you know, the average sized smallholding Australian farm. One that runs at least 500 head of beefies just to keep him properly fed.

    He looks like a sheet of plywood with ears and a beret. Would it have killed the Aussie gov't to spring for a bit of tailoring?
