Meet Jordan Matson, an American veteran and Christian who is fighting with the Kurds to defeat ISIS.

Matson has been fighting ISIS since September. His vest is inscribed with the words, “Christ is Lord.”

Matson spoke to Sean Hannity today from an undisclosed location in Syria. He explained that the tipping point for him was when Mosul fell to ISIS, and Christians were forced to flee or be killed.

O’Reilly Factor, Bill sat down with Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL sniper credited with 150 certified kills and author of the book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.

Kyle, the recipient of five Bronze Stars and two Silver Stars, revealed to O’Reilly why he punched former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, knocking him to the floor. Kyle said that he encountered Ventura at a bar while attending the wake of a fallen SEAL, and that Ventura started bad-mouthing America, then-President Bush, and the Iraq war. When Kyle asked him to tone it down so as not to upset the family, Ventura said, “You [the Navy SEALs] deserve to lose a few guys.” Kyle then punched him and took off running!

O’Reilly asked Kyle about his experiences in Iraq, where he was deployed four times. In his book, Kyle refers to enemy Iraqis as ‘savages’. He explained why to O’Reilly saying”

“The way they live day-to-day as far as the violence they commit on American troops – the beheadings, the rape of innocent villagers and townspeople, just to intimidate them. They live by putting fear into other people’s hearts. Civilized people just don’t act that way.”

A lawyer for victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting and their families says the combat-related benefits that come with the Purple Heart — now being considered thanks to new legislation — will be a lifeline for many of his clients, who are still so damaged physically and mentally they are unable to work five years after the massacre.

“No one will be the same,” Neal Sher told Fox News. “The people who have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) — both those who were hit by bullets and others who were in that area — that is a very, very debilitating condition. And they’re suffering on a daily basis. And as I said, families have been broken apart.”

There appears no doubt that Hasan was motivated by his extreme religious views and by the radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who, at the time, was a leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen. After his August 2013 conviction, Hasan told his lawyer, John Galligan, to release letters to Fox News in which Hasan pledged his allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, and also wrote to Pope Francis about the virtues of Islam.

Sher told Fox that there was stiff resistance to the NDAA’s new language. “The administration and the Pentagon,” Sher explained, “they lobbied hard against it. But we worked very hard and we were successful in garnering bi-partisan support for this.”

Aside from the benefits for the families, Sher said the Purple Heart, or its civilian equivalent, will go a long way toward recognizing the suffering and mitigating the insult of calling it workplace violence.

WWII - NORMANDY BEACH - JUNE 1944 D-DAY INVASION - SUPPLIES COMING ASHORE

We get a feeling when we see the American flag raised, the national anthem played, and our men and women in uniform saluting. Children look up and put their hands over their hearts. Men take off their hats. For a moment, we are united.

Because of You by Roger Robicheau …

You put it on the line for us
We won’t forget, you are A-Plus

This country stands because of you
Your service seals red white, and blue

No better troops embrace this earth
Thank God for you, our greatest worth

We pray for you both night and day
God be with you along your way

You wear your uniform with pride
And use your skills, so well applied

The rank you hold does mean one thing
You’re a GI and you are first-string

Be well assured we back you strong
How proud we say ‘that you belong’

Without your will – to walk the walk
We’d have no right – to talk the talk
