Too bad he's not cute and blonde, eh?
Another Ambush Hero Enjoys Smaller Spotlight
After he and four others were taken prisoner together, [Pfc. Patrick] Miller convinced the Iraqis that the numbers on a scrap of paper they found in his helmet — the unit's secret radio frequencies — were just prices for power-steering pumps; the Iraqis tossed the scrap into a fire. And for three weeks he set about irking their captors with tone-deaf renditions of country singer Toby Keith's anti-terrorist anthem "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."

The Army investigated the ambush and determined Miller "may have killed as many as nine Iraqi combatants."

Wonder when we're going to see any TV movies about him?
