The old media loves to portray the U.S. military as uncaring warmongers running roughshod over the globe.  To them, the United States is always the problem, never the solution.  The truth is that members of the American Armed Forces have a long history of trying to assist local civilians during engagements, and lending aid and comfort is almost always one of their primary goals.

Even after their service is up, many of them become aid workers - dedicating themselves to the effort to help those in harm’s way. You’d never know it if you only listen to the left.

So, when we have a piece of footage like this, we like to make sure you see it. On the streets of Mosul, ISIS snipers had killed multiple civilians in the middle of a wide street. That’s when ex-Green Beret David Eubank saw a little girl moving among the victims.

As the Business Insider reports:

“I thought, ‘If I die doing this, my wife and kids would understand,” Eubank told the Los Angeles Times.

According to the Times, Eubank’s dramatic rescue played out on a street in the Iraqi city of Mosul, where ISIS snipers were firing at civilians that were attempting to flee. Wearing only a t-shirt, bulletproof vest, and helmet, Eubank is seen running out into the street approximately 150 yards where he picks up the girl and brings her back safely behind a tank.

Eubank, 56, served for a decade with the US Army Special Forces. After leaving the military, he founded an aid group called the Free Burma Rangers, which seeks to bring “hope and love to people in the conflict zones of Burma, Iraq, and Sudan,” according to its website.
