For sure the U.S. World Cup Team showed some serious bravery in the face of adversity tonight, so much so that they inspired one of our bravest, Lance Corporal Nate Bickel, to pen this email to us after the game:
Name: Lcpl Nate Bickel
Subject: Group C Champions
Message: So we aren't sure who to send this to but my unit here in Helmand Province, Afghanistan wanted you to know the Kilo Company 3d Battalion, 3d Marine Regiment couldn't be more proud of the U.S. National Team and were excited every time we can hear about the games since we don't have the luxury of TV here. Keep fighting!
Thanks very much Nate!
