Soldier Wins $1 Million In Lottery, So of Course He's... Heading Right Back To Iraq For His Third Tour

Tony Stark? Fuck you.

After completing two tours in Iraq, Sgt. Wayne Leyde won $1 million from a scratch-and-win lotto ticket on Tuesday.

Now that he's won, Leyde, a 26-year-old member of the Washington National Guard, says he's still going to volunteer to go back to Iraq for a third tour and won't spend any of the money in the meantime.


Leyde couldn't believe it when he scratched a winning ticket, but he still plans to return to Iraq.

"It was a commitment I made about three months ago. I'm going to stick to it," Leyde said about his decision.

Now that's a motivated individual.

Not really related, except that it's swiped from Drudge -- here's that area-denial pain ray in action against the real enemy, a 60 Minutes reporter.
