The story of the Lone Marine: These guys are made of something tougher than the rest of us

by editor on June 25, 2011

There’s an annual event in Washington, DC called Rolling Thunder Sunday in which thousands of vets ride their motorcycles to the Vietnam Memorial. It’s an incredible display of patriotism and comradeship — the kind of thing you’d expect from guys who were willing to risk their lives for the rest of us.

We salute retired Staff Sergeant Tim Chambers

For the last few years, one Marine in full dress uniform has stood at attention in the middle of the street holding a continuous, unbroken salute for every biker in the procession. His remarkable exhibition of strength and dedication lasts more than four hours.

Back in 2002 retired Staff Sergeant Tim Chambers decided he wanted to do something to show all the other vets how much he cared, so he spontaneously stepped into the road to salute to the riders. That first salute has now become an annual event.

Why the salute? “It’s about the pain,” Tim said. “A lot of these heroic guys still hurt and if I can relieve their pain for just one brief moment, then I’ve done my job.”

This year’s salute was more painful than usual. Watch the video. Be amazed. Be proud. And be grateful that there are guys like Tim Chambers who are willing and able to do the things they do.

Semper fi, Sergeant Chambers.

Now that is a true hero! Thank you to every Service member who has ever served, or will serve and those who are first responders. Semper Externus, Semper Fidelis, Frater Infinitas!

I am significantly impressed that two additional Marines stood with SSG Chambers in Rolling Thunder 2012. At first I thought they would relieve him as 3 – 4 hours is a very long time. When I realized that they joined him rather than relieve him, I was even more impressed. Marines are a very unique breed of soldier. As I have studied our country’s Armed Forces, I haven’t been able to figure out what Marines DON’T do. Thank you, SSG Chambers for honoring the men and women who lost their lives in the service of our country, especially the respect and honor you give to those of the Korean and Vietnam wars.

I didn’t express myself completely … SSG Chambers, you stand and salute those of Rolling Thunder to honor them as well. By watching the videos, it is very apparent how much gratitude they feel for you.

I stumbled across this news story by chance, and it brought me to tears. You guys really know how to salute and respect those that served your country, I wish were I lived (England) it was the same as opposed to one day a year. For what its worth I am grateful, at least of your great nations assistance during WW2. You saved us big time!

God bless America

Thank You English Patriot.
You should be here when we have discussions about government run healthcare. It would be nice to get a European perspective.

English Patriot – it doesn’t matter what country you live in. Any man or woman who has the courage to stand for something that is just, to help those who cannot help themselves; to protect those who are in danger and reach beyond their own self for the benefit of another… all of you deserve the utmost respect and gratitude. I would stand on the steps of England’s most notable landmark to honor you and your fellow police officers for the same reason I would stand in Washington with SSG Chambers. When my son finishes his tour of duty in the US Army, he wants to be a police officer because he sees the need to help those who cannot help themselves. His love and compassion for others drives him to be the most he can be. May God bless you and protect you.

No one likes war but our country has participated in the fight for and preservation of freedom since day one. We as a group have treated our veterans shamefully in more than one instance. That Sgt. Chambers saw a way and acted on it to honor those MIAs POWs and veterans and to finally welcome them home is to be commended and respected and repeated. An amazing American.

TheDarkEricDraven. your sick. just reading your comments makes me wanna puke. you are a disgrace to our country. i belittle you. i would never want to meet you in person. because i would pound your face in. and i would never feel any sorrow for doing it either. you have no right to sit here and bash on our military. those men and women who serve our country should be worshipped. literally. they put all their time into keeping our country safe! they fight for us. they die for us. i have family, and friends, and former class mates who serve for us. i have dated a military man . i respect those people.! our men and women have families and friends who care about them. how would you like to see your husband or wife only what once or twice a year not even if that . im a 19 year old girl and i respect others. but you i have not even an ounce of respect for such an irrogant ass. im told to over look people small in the mind. but you. i could not keep my mouth shut for a second. i would give you the piece of toilet paper i wiped my ass with already. because thats how low i look at you. what you need to do is keep your comments to yourself. nobody could care about what you have to say these people respect those men and women for what they do and why they do it! because you dont ? you feel the need to boast about something that has absolutly nothing to do with this story ? its either you respect them or you dont. point blank. so do us all a favor and shut your trap. leave this page and go screw your mom. kay thanks and GOOD-BYE!

now SSG Chambers. thank you for all your hard work and duties to fight for our country. and thank you to anybody everybody else who has served or is serving for our country. god bless you all.

darkrottencrotch. needs to be snuffed in his face for being such a disrespectful dumbass..
its discusting to even read his comments. someone so stuck up his own ass. makes him self yet look ohh so stupid.!
i would enjoy seeing him being deployed over to afganistan. let him see what those who serve see everyday. even just some of these men and women do multiple tours over seas to fight for us. they dedicate their lives for our country ! they see things nobody should have or needs to see. because what they see is so inhumane. they see things WE DO NOT see.
and to just sit here and boast about nothing is simply pathetic. show some friggin damn sympathy for these people who fight, who have and who will fight for us and for our country everyday everynight .
you sleep in a bed at night. you eat everyday. you see your friends. and your family. every single day.
you are not out at battle like our soldiers! they dont sleep in their beds at the end of the day. sometimes they dont even eat for days. and the shit they get prob doesnt even match up to anything we have to eat home cooked meals. fast food. resturants. they dont see or speak to friends and family everyday like most of us do.
i would love to spit in this kids face. for being such a douche.

To the Dark Evil one. I have read all of your posts/replies. I have a question for you. Can you tell me what if anything you have done for your fellow Americans? My family has had a member in one of the branches of the military for every war all the way back to the Revolution against the British. As for myself I was married to a USAF member for 20+ years and during that time I helped the younger wives adjust to being married to a person that could be deployed to a war zone. I helped with directions around base if they needed that. I have a rare blood type and am VERY hard to draw blood from, so the base hospital would call and ask me to come in and volunteer to have all the new students try to take a blood sample from me. Have you ever sat perfectly still and remained quiet when you get stuck by a needle where ever there is a vein? When 9/11 happened I got called to the hospital to give blood. Just as I did for every blood drive. After the buildings came down we packed up our BBQ and RV and drove from California to New York and provided free meals to all those who were working on the site. This was all done with our funds. After Hurricane Katrina hit Louisana we went to the gulf coast and using our funds and vehicles we rebuilt homes, churches, and community centers all along the gulf coast. After the tornado hit Joplin we loaded up once again and headed east to help our fellow Americans. Again we spent several months rebuilding as many homes, churches, and community centers as we could. We even had lumber sent to down to us. We didn’t expect or take anything. And now watching my home town burn, we are preparing for yet another trip to help our brothers and sisters rebuild. Again we accept nothing except for the occasional meal. I ask you again Eric. What have you done for your fellow Americans besides sit on your backside complaining about others. It’s AMAZING how many VETERANS we meet every time we go out to a disaster site. I feel sorry for you. You must lead a very lonely life, since you can’t see any of the goodness of the military and it’s veterans.

To Ssgt. Chambers, Thank you for your service!

Thanks for that info Poppa and drb, I had read all of his posts and couldn’t get them out of my mind when I got stuck in ICU for awhile, and the longer I thought about his nasty replies the madder I got. And then I began to wonder if anything has he EVER done in his miserable life to help out his fellow Americans??? In ICU there isn’t a whole lot to keep your mind off of your medical condition, and after three full days without sleep I had thought about this horrible little person way too much, and decided that as soon as I was well enough to get home and get online I was going to leave a reply. Can’t say I’m surprised to hear that he’s gone, just like cockroaches run from the light. Liars run from the truth. Our Veterans and Military is our nation’s true heros. When everyone else runs away they are the ones that run into danger. I can’t do enough to thank them for what they have done for me and my family. Sheryl

I’m unsure why there is anything other than Thank you going on here? This is insane how people will submit their 2 cents with no thought. I’m a combat vet. A former Marine. I served my country with pride and if I could do it all again I would. I was part of the Lioness program in 2009 during OIF. An Iraqi national had a bomb strapped to her chest and a young child in her arms. She was 10 seconds away from detonating when she got to the heart of the security check point. Me and 3 other female Marines got her out of the building with 2 seconds left and jumped behind a concrete barrier. She blew up and so did her baby. You see stuff you should never have to, you do some things that you would not normally do to save you life, but in the end all of this is done with you pride for your country. Lot’s of innocent people would have died had we not done what we did, the same holds true for our service members from past, present, and future. So, before yo comment please make sure your being respectful and also thinking about what your about to say and how much people will dislike you because of your comment. Your best bet is to thank all military vets, without them you may not be as free as you are.

Stacey – how do you even deal with that memory? I so worry about my son who never speaks of his experiences in Afghanistan because he doesn’t want to worry me. I do worry about his silence and hope he has some strong connections within his company to be able to cope with his combat duties. As much to Staff Sergeant Chambers I give to you as well, thank you for serving our country and for the service you gave in Iraqi. May the mercy of the Lord be with the misguided woman who took her life and the life of an innocent child. You do your country proud, Stacey. Thank you.

Think about it Sheryl. We almost all have gone through traumatic experiences we don’t talk about because it brings back memories we’ve buried. I’m no combat vet but I did witness and tried to help 3 people who died in a brutal auto accident years ago on a Thanksgiving day no less. I have tears in my eyes as I’m typing.

Type in George Gaydos in IHTM search. My great-uncle jumped on D-Day and went all the way across Europe during WWII. You could watch Band of Brothers and get an idea of what his ordeal was.

One thing I noticed at a very young age was whenever someone would play “Little Drummer Boy” around Christmas he’d get way down and drink more than usual. You put 2 + 2 together and it’s not hard to figure out why that song major upset him.

Towards the end of the war Hitler was sending kids to the front to fight. I never heard it from him but I would expect he probably had to kill a kid or kid’s during the war and never, ever, got over it.

The man was a lush all his life. I can’t say I ever saw him sober. Guess why? But I respected him and while no one can ever understand what he went through, I had enough of a clue to get it.

As author of “Tribute to Those Serving the Red, White, and Blue,” which will be out around the 16th of May I commend all who serve. While we sit home and have the freedom to complain those serving protect our right to have freedom. This weekend over 3000 Veteran Motorcyclists rode across country through our state to the Capitol of Boise, Idaho. There purpose was to discuss rode safety for motorcyclist. Not only do they serve in war times but they serve their country at home. The ride side by side with non-military groups. United as one to keep highways safe just like when they fight to keep the country safe. God Bless you Staff Sergeant Tim Chambers. You go beyond the call of duty.

I never cry. My father is a Viet Vet. My brother desert storm and desert shield vet (dad calls him a sandbox vet when they are joking around) My cousin joined Coast Guard though he didnt go over seas he served this country. His father served. Both of my grandfathers in WWII. My great grandfather was a calvery man who was assigned to a regiment chasing Pancho Villa. It goes back even to the civil war…We had one on each side serving, The revelutionary war…we had someone serve. My family is a military family. My dad went from Navy to Coast Guard when he needed to be closer to home. Teachers tried to teach me Viet Vets are evil. They even said some of the things people said here. He told me they were rapist and baby killers. Even then I stood up and called him a coward who knew nothing because he ran from the draft and only taught one side of the story because he was too scared to leaarn all the facts first hand. To ANY vet you have my respect such as it is, my thanks, and my love. To this lone marine….you brought tears to my eyes. You brought a profound since of respect to those who endured even more mental anguish added to what they saw and what they suffered by coming home to a country overrun by hippies and protesting hippies. Thank you.

Pay no attention to the Dark Dickwad behind the curtain, Angel. He is an insult to the human race.

Thank you and thanks to your family for their service.

Tae

Now now, associating DarkEric with the human race signifies that he’s capable of standing upright. That requires a better @$$ to D!<x ratio. He currently gets so many of them in his @$$ that he no longer holds the capacity of standing upright. Thereby is not a human and instead an insult to monkeys everywhere.

The monkeys are angry mr Eric, very angry. They are also angry because he eats a disproportionate amount of their p00. that means they have less of it to throw at people passing by the Zoo cage he is held in. [3:

When my veteran grandfather died I thanked and shook the hand of every honor guard who showed up at the funeral, someone had to do it. Still as honorable people we should love all of mankind, and not hate anyone. Even if they eat their own p00.

TheDarkEricDraven

I’m pretty sure humans know to capitalize and punctuate “Mr.”.

Tae

Only if it signifies a specific person place or thing. Such as to say that mr puppy wouldn’t be capitalized, while Mr. George would be.

TheDarkEricDraven
Guest

As in the case of “Mr. Eric”.

Tae
Member

It’s mr Eric because while DarkEric doesn’t really exist, we simply believe he’s a construct of fictitious storytelling and culture. Like how Christians don’t capitalize the word god when referring to gods of other religions. While they would capitalize the name of the god. On the other hand Christians would capitalize the word God when referring to the Christian God. Accepting that they exist would be considered sinful.

However, I still love you mr Eric.

TheDarkEricDraven
Guest

According to Wikipedia, you are just talking out your ass http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr.

Tae
Member

No no, it’s quite right. Mr. denotes that a person is a gentlemen, a master, or that they exist at all. Saying a person is mr Benny, for example, would be to insult them as being undeserving of the title.

I fail to see anything in the article that refutes my statement. According to it, giving you Mr. title would assume that you are either honorable, or deserving the personification of something the English language actually has a word for. I don’t think that pertains to your person, dear imaginary friend. [3:

You miss the point entirely, Eric. But that is your intention. This country exists because brave men and women are and always have been willing to defend her, have always been willing to follow the orders of Our elected government. IE The Commander in Chief. Right Wrong or indifferent. Had they not always been willing to do so this country have never have been founded. Justified or not our armed forces were ordered into Viet Nam and they went. They went because they took an oath to defend this country and follow the orders of our executive branch of government, even if it meant they went to their deaths( many did). I suspect you are a coward because you refuse to acknowledge Courage, Honor, Duty in anyone else. You just want something to bellyache about. and oddly enough, you have that right. Granted by the sacrifices you mock!

The Supreme Court does not agree with you!

Involuntary servitude
In Selective Draft Law Cases, 245 U.S. 366 (1918), the Supreme Court ruled that the military draft was not “involuntary servitude”.
Offenses against the Thirteenth Amendment have not been prosecuted since 1947.[7][8]
Psychological coercion had been the primary means of forcing involuntary servitude in United States v. Ingalls, 73 F. Supp. 76, 77 (S.D. Cal. 1947). However, in United States v. Kozminski, 487 U.S. 931 (1988), the Supreme Court ruled that the Thirteenth Amendment did not prohibit compulsion of servitude through psychological coercion.[9][10] Kozminski limited involuntary servitude to those situations when the master subjects the servant to:
threatened or actual physical force,
threatened or actual state-imposed legal coercion or
fraud or deceit where the servant is a minor, an immigrant or mentally incompetent.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, P.L. 106-386, updated the federal anti-slavery statutes to include victims who are enslaved through psychological coercion, even if there was no physical coercion.[11][12]
U.S. Courts of Appeals, in Immediato v. Rye Neck School District, Herndon v. Chapel Hill, and Steirer v. Bethlehem School District, have ruled that the use of community service as a high school graduation requirement did not violate the Thirteenth Amendment.

Yeah, it does. It’s hilarious when you get all angry and can’t come up with coherent arguments.

Coherent arguments involve accepting logical evidence under a valid premise evidence and conclusion, which form a logical statement.

Premise
Evidence
Conclusion

Eric provides none and accepts none. Instead his false premises surround meaningless information, if any, he gives in order to agitate people whom he dislikes, and derail the thread. That gives him satisfaction regardless of the truth in the information; It’s an argument for the sake of an argument.

As for me, I’m just here for shits and giggles, and I wouldn’t have stayed on the page if it weren’t for a chance to bash an uneducated monkey like Eric. The valid argument that he is uneducated is proven by his poor clauses, which we can now evidently blame on the Arkansas schooling system.

Eric might be very poorly educated.
He is a liberal who went to school in Arkansas.
Eric is very poorly educated.

This is a logical statement.

Someone is saying something about servicemen that sounds a lot like Archie Bunker claiming that some of his best friends are colored.

But with some leftards — oh, OK, most of them, they have another neat little “heads I win/Tails you lose” kind of game. When we go into Iraq, they scream that we’re just in there for the oil, the U$ of AmeriKKKa. Well of course, a reliable supply of oil is in the vital national interests of the US, as well as most of the rest of the world.

Now though, in Afghanistan, where there is no $$$ to be blamed, does that get us a pass? Of course not! We are accused precisely of being in there with no good reason! See this is why it’s pointless to argue or debate, because they pull the Jedi mind tricks like that. Or in another parlance, it’s what is known in the trade as “The Magician’s Force.” Suppose there’s a row of cards, and you are supposed to pick one – no matter what number you give, the magician will get to the one he needs, whether by switching which end he counts from, or counting up to the given number, and the next one is it, or even -worse comes to worse- spelling out a number – O – N- E to get to the third card, for example. Lefties do the same. no matter what reason you give for anything, they will be able to twist it around to bring it back to their core thesis: AmeriKKKa $uck$.

Does that include the one that shot up a bunch of women and children? What about the ones who sexually assault female troops?

It happens everyday because women are objects in their eyes. perhaps if you weren’t a pussy you might have deployed in support of OIF/OEF and you could have seen how “terrorists” really act.

That is because their government controls their media. It would never be broadcast. In addition, a woman’s testimony is worth half of a man’s, so there is no such thing as “he said she said”; it’s just “he said”. And btw, haven’t you ever heard of honor killings? When a woman is raped, her own family kills her to protect the honor of the family due to the fact that the daughter/sister is no longer a virgin.

Don’t bash our military because of a rogue few. The majority are people with the courage to stand up for what is right at their own cost. For some of us, it means we never see them again and little boys grow up without their daddies. This is to protect the downtrodden citizens of their countries, and more importantly, all of us.

The army should do a better job of keeping the “rouges” in check.

If half of the positive things our soldiers did were as publicized as the negative, there wouldn’t be much airtime at all for those isolated events. Unfortunately, our society wants to find reasons to hate ourselves. It’s a sad and fatal flaw.

Just because you haven’t heard of it or seen it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

I was there when the body of a young women was recovered from the Tondo gabarge dump in Manila in about 1985. She had been repeatedly raped in some very imaginative ways. Her body showed signs of torture by execution. Almost every inch of skin had then been peeled from her body. Finally, she was dumped, apparently still alive on a garbage pile. She was a known member of an NPA Sparrow Team, groups which were targeting and American military members for assassination. Her father, editor of Philippines largest daily newspaper at the time, was very vocal against the NPA and their activities. Her NPA comrades claimed the atrocity and stated it was a message to her father and others who disapproved of their tactics.

I have intervied victims of rapes in Kuwait. I have read numerous intelligence reports of incidents in many other places.

TERRORISTS ARE NOT NICE PEOPLE, no matter how much you wish them to be.

You are a mousy little pussy, Eric/john. The elected leaders call the shots as to when the military is deployed not the military itself. Not liking the military because they were ordered to fight a “useless war” makes as much sense as not liking students because their teacher assigned them homework.

TheDarkEricDraven

There was no draft. Anyone currently in the military chose to go. I mean, I don’t blame ALL military people. There are perfectly good people in the army, navy, air force, marines, and so forth. It’s the ones who aim for civilians and rape fellow soldiers that piss me off.

While I have no data to support what you claim, the military is a microcosm of society at large. You will have good and bad people distributed along the same curve as the rest of the population.

No idea what’s going on in Afgan. Nazis? Oil? Don’t know. What is the war ABOUT? Britan and Japan are in there, so it can’t be America charging in to get something for themselves like Iraq.

What did we get in Iraq, Eric/john? Britain was in Iraq too. So were many other countries. That was why they called it a coalition.

Read retards. From the libtard LA Times http://goo.gl/75rzn

“After landing on a darkened runway late Tuesday night, Obama rushed to the heavily fortified presidential palace of Afghan President Hamid Karzai to sign a strategic partnership accord that sets the broad outlines of U.S. engagement for a decade beyond the completion of NATO’s combat role in 2014.” In case you’re too stupid to get it, 10 years after 2014 is 2024.

Your disdain for the military is misplaced. If you really believe that the military picks and chooses the places they go or the things they do then you are poorly informed. Your disgust should be with those in office that send our men and women to do those things you claim to be useless. They use and abuse those that are willing to standup and answer the call to defend this nation. Based on the standards, rules, and regulations user which they fall, service members simply have limited choice in the wars they fight.

Yes dumbshit, Categorize the millions who have served by the actions of a very few bad apples. So tell me your history of service towards others-what oh you don’t have any? Our brave men and women who serve VOLUNTARILY do so to allow cowardly, ,weasel dick welfare receipients such as yourself to shoot your stupid mouth off about things that you don’t know about. Try looking up dignity, respect, class and honor. I know they are foreign concepts to your type of filth. You don’t have the stones to talk shit in person to vets, only online from the comfort of your mother’s basement. And yes, I am a proud career vet. STFU.

I think what this Sgt did was amazing, as a active duty sailor for the last 9+ years he shows what true dedication and respect is all about. What isnt needed here is for people to come on here bashing military groups for the certain actions of some and presenting it here. Either say something respectful or say nothing at all and keep your trash talking for some place else like facebook, it doesnt belong here, Staff Sergeant Tim Chambers I salute you!

It’s the military that gives the ignorant and the ungrateful the Freedom and the Right, to make such comments. Worse than war. War is an ugly thing,but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much, much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight,nothing he cares about, more than his own personal saftey, is a miserable creature, that has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so, by the exertions of better men than he. Thank GOD, for such men. Semper-Fi.
