There he stands, monitering and correcting fellow servicemembers! Last Spring he stood alongside his Congressman ( Mike Rogers-MI ) observing and correcting his Purple Heart denial. When this picture was taken, SSG Knudsen was still carrying shrapnel in his shoulder and head. SSG Knudsen is now retired medically from his wounds. This picture taken of him is iconic because still today, even though retired from service and disabled, he still stands tall amongst his fellow servicemembers....monitering and correcting their actions. Few people know it but, he will be in washington D.C. again soon monitering and correcting the failures of our senior military leadership.

I'm glad i found this blog. SSG Knudsen was my adopted soldier through soldier's angels, and his information disappeared sometime ago without explantion, now i know why. I hope all is well with him.
