Staff Sgt. David G. Bellavia was awarded the Medal of Honor in June of last year and gave a phenomenal speech after receiving the medal.
That video just went viral following the situation in Iran and Iraq.
“The threats to our nation, they don’t sleep. They’re watching our every move: Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, ISIS, al Qaeda — they may be watching this right now,” said Bellavia.
He continued, “Our military should not be mistaken for a cable news gabfest show. We don’t care what you look, we don’t care who you voted for, who you worship, what you worship, who you love. It doesn’t matter if your dad left you millions when he died or if you knew who your father was. We have been honed into a machine of lethal moving parts you would be wise to avoid if you knew what’s good for you.”
Bellavia let it be known that these men in his military are as solid as they come…
“We will not be intimidated,” Bellavia warned. “We will not back down. We’ve seen war.”
“We don’t want war, but if you want a war with the United States of America, there is one thing I can promise you, so help me God: Someone else will raise your sons and daughters.”
WOW! Just WOW!

Trump praised Bellavia for his “extraordinary courage” during the ceremony.
“David today we honor your extraordinary courage, we salute your selfless service and we thank you for carrying on the legacy of American valor that has always made our blessed nation the strongest and mightiest anywhere in the world,” Trump said.
“David often tells young people that Americans don’t want to fight but if someone picks a fight with us we will always win because we don’t fight for awards and recognition,” the president added. “We fight for love of our country, our homeland, our family and our unit and that’s stronger than anything the enemy has.” (Daily Wire)
