Soldiers Like Megadeth Frontman And Vice Versa

Dave Mustaine

Dave Mustaine may be a lunatic, but at least he’s a patriotic lunatic.

The Megadeth frontman was recently gifted an American flag that was flown over Camp Leatherneck, amid the battlefields of Afghanistan, during decisive operations against enemy forces in Helmand Province.

The flag was dedicated in Mustaine’s honor by Lieutenant Colonel Stephen D. Sklenka of United States Marine Corps.

“Besides getting married and the birth of my two children, I have never been more proud than this moment,” Mustaine commented upon receiving the flag.

“To all of our servicemen and servicewomen, I love you all, and THIS American supports our troops!,” says Mustaine.

See? A lunatic, but nevertheless patriotic.

    That would be the same Dave Mustaine who penned the line “Military Intelligence; two words combined that can’t make sense”
