Marine Who Stopped Armed Robber Wears ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Shirt to His Valor Award Ceremony 

We covered the heroics of James Kilcer recently, the retired Marine who stopped an armed robber and his accomplices at a Chevron Gas Station in Yuma, AZ last Wednesday.  

You’ll recall that Kilcer acted without hesitation, disarming the armed perp and taking him to the ground while the other two perps fled the scene.  

Well, this week, Kilcer was honored by the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) for his bravery and quick response during the harrowing ordeal.

Sheriff Leon Wilmot presented Kilcer on Tuesday with the YCSO Citizen’s Valor Award, the highest award for citizens whose actions warrant recognition.

“For extraordinary heroism and exceptional courage while voluntarily coming to the aid of another citizen during an incident involving criminal activity at extreme, life threatening, personal risk in an attempt to save or protect human life,” the citation reads.  

Well deserved, no doubt about that.  

But perhaps the best part about the award ceremony is Kilcer showed up in a MAGA hat and a “Let’s Go Brandon” t-shirt.  LOL. 

Awesome story and an awesome dude.  

And, if you see Mr. Kilcer in public, and want to thank him for being a good Samaritan, he told Fox News that he’ll happily take a beer.

    It is the Democrat Party’s insane anti gun positions over the years that eventually turned this life long Democrat into a Republican.

  • Ej harbet November 9, 2021, 8:21 am

    And all who support him and the
    Destruction of this nation.
    Die screaming and roast in pain.
    No mercy

    “Let’s Go Brandon”

    Hey Brother, wear whatever you want, dream however you like, but Semper Fi my brother. Glad you took care of business when time came to get to work.

  • Jim October 30, 2021, 1:40 am

    Anyone who calls Trump a crook and defends Biden has totally been brainwashed by CNN and MSNBC. The lunacy of liberals is really frightening.

  • Shanz October 29, 2021, 9:07 pm

    Fuck all you Trump haters. Little bitches who are triggered by a hat. Thx for your Biden vote you commy pieces of shit. Fuck Joe Biden Fuck you. This guy could kick any of your pussy asses any day. Go wear your mask and troll somewhere else

  • donald October 29, 2021, 3:48 pm

    a few biden lovers on here… Fuck joe biden

    • Rich Smith November 1, 2021, 1:25 pm

      Considering that’s the majority of America, it’s a safe bet Biden supporters are in more places then the other guys.
      It’s just simple math facts.

  • Marineme2 October 29, 2021, 1:04 pm

    We need more heroes like Kilcer, BUT what a disappointment to see anyone still wearing a MAGA hat and supporting trump after seeing enough evidence indicating what a sick crook trump is. Kilcer, you showed your physical skills maybe its time you worked on your intellectual and educated capabilities which seem to have atrophied.

    • MAglide October 29, 2021, 11:04 pm

      What evidence?

    • John Boutwell October 30, 2021, 8:03 pm

      Perhaps you should check your Biden and family corruption before pointing fingers son.

    • Ej harbet November 9, 2021, 8:19 am

      Marine me too
      User name checks out.
      Get some butt hurt cream and stop looking attractive to marines and you won’t be me too-ed

  • Dano October 29, 2021, 11:38 am

    Best part? I have to question the mentality of anyone who supports Trump.

    • Joe October 29, 2021, 12:56 pm

      You said it brotha. The guys action was brave and he should be recognized for this, but then its too bad to see someone actually still showing support for the idiot that aspires to “rule” America even at the loss of Democracy

      • Jay nottingham October 29, 2021, 5:47 pm

        Loss of democracy are u an idiot or just a moron. Get off CNN and MSNBC and pull ur water baby head out of the sand and look around. WHO has restricted ur freedoms, taken ur right away or is trying. Jesus christ I am tired of retards trying to say this stupidity.

    • Kane October 29, 2021, 9:52 pm

      Biden and Harris are even worse that the Klintons, Bush 41 and 43 and Barry Sotero all put together.

      I will take Trump warts and all.

    • John Boutwell October 30, 2021, 8:06 pm

      Not nearly as much as many Americans question your ability to see the folly of your Dems. and like minded fools.

  • Kane October 29, 2021, 10:51 am

    It’s worth mentioning how fast the second robber fell down and crawled for the door.

    Too many of this stores have the gun restricted zone stickers where the absense of this worthless gesture might prevent a robbery attempt in the first place especially among criminals as incompetent as these two.

  • Tenbones October 29, 2021, 10:46 am

    Gotta love it!

  • Bob October 29, 2021, 10:39 am

    I wonder if this wonderful “patriot” was one of the traitors who broke into the Capitol and fought with my brother police officers while trying to overthrow our government on January 6th. He sure as shit fits the bill. I’ll buy him a beer when he acts like an American instead of a stupid ass rebel.

    • DELCO October 29, 2021, 12:08 pm

      Bob why make shit up? You don’t know anything about this guy. What happened on the 6th was not good (obviously) but don’t assume. You are saying because this guy is a white guy with a beard and hates Biden that he is in some way connected to a group. What group are you in bob. Let’s see bob you are probably a scrawny guy who never played sports or had an attractive lady on a reg basis and watches the view. Yep that’s probably you bob. See how easy it is to think a certain way bob. Maybe I’ll buy you bob a beer when we all know you stop living that sheltered way of life.

    • Rick October 29, 2021, 12:20 pm

      So triggered by a shirt and a hat, and to believe the selfie parade through the capital was an actual attempt at government overthrow?
      I’m sure I’m not the only one laughing at your ignorance.

      • tony October 29, 2021, 3:24 pm

        ….and what would anyone call the violent, out of control riot by idiots that stormed the Capital as if this were a Third World Country. It is beyond my comprehension to hear people, essentially the politicians state it was Non-Violent….are they friggin kidding…do they believe that anyone is so stupid as to believe this. Well, yes i guess they do, but seeing some of these truly hateful, self-righteous Republicans spout such total and complete BS and the folks parrot it back re-affirms my belief that Trump followers were hugely ignorant, brain-dead, under-educated, and plain Stupid….This is exactly what the Founding Fathers Warned against – the ignorance of the masses.

        • Armed and Dangerous November 1, 2021, 8:50 am

          You may be right Tony. Now how about the idiots in Portland, Seattle and Minneapolis burning buildings and police cars and shooting people. Oh yeah, they were just “peaceful protesters”. Get a brain moron.

        • DELCO November 1, 2021, 8:53 am

          Tony I in no way think trump us some great guy. I think if he would have been somewhat presidential and not got into so many stupid quarrels then his policies would have been hard for the left to ignore. That said what we have no running the country is beyond awful. Am AG who son in law is making millions wrecking our school system all along the AG using the Feds to harass parents. And what about 3 plus years of absolutely fake Russian stories? The left has nothing to stand on. I don’t like trump as a person, but his policies were great for American citizens.

      • Rich Smith November 1, 2021, 1:16 pm

        Ask the selfie brigade how jail is going. Have never met a single sole sent to jail that didn’t belong there… taking selfies doesn’t land you in jail. Just a fact.

    • Rick H October 29, 2021, 1:18 pm

      So triggered by a shirt and a hat, wow! and do you really believe that was an attempted government takeover , look at 99 % of the footage , just selfie patrols with cops letting them in. When losing, revert to Jan 6th, it’s all you have and it’s really in fact not much , unless you’re the un armed gal who took one to the neck , go pander your 1-6 crap somewhere else Bobby.

    • Lance October 29, 2021, 1:30 pm

      Are you retarded? This has nothing to do with the Crapitol ! This man is a hero and should be treated as such. Go push some papers and pull your head out.

      • roger October 29, 2021, 3:27 pm

        yes, he is a HERO, but that has NOTHING to do with the fact that he must be an idiot to wear that fool’s hat…but he obviously is another lemming-like follower and not the brightest bulb in the light.

        • DELCO November 1, 2021, 8:46 am

          Roger I guess you feel the same way about all those Antifa, BLM punks who for literally months tried to and did burn down police stations, and attacked Federal court houses. How many officers were injured, and how many innocent people wearing red hats were assaulted and in some cases killed. Jan 6th was not good obviously. But either be consistent or stop being a fraud. And look what we have now running our country. This current administration is a Giant mess. Way to many things to even mention, except backed up ships, removing our borders, firing thousands for political reasons, and now offering illegals $450 K each for braking our laws. Roger have some dignity.

    • Jay nottingham October 29, 2021, 5:50 pm

      Ur fake. What u mean is the FBI agents who instigated and pushed January 6th and before u get butt hurt there is now proof of what I say. Prime instigators on tape and camera and social media have disappeared, cant be found and with a FOIA to the fbi, they refused to give information about these people caught on video trying to get people to storm the capability. Idiots

    • John Boutwell October 30, 2021, 8:09 pm

      Son if that had been an overthrow of the government your like minded friends would no longer be in power.

      • Rich Smith November 1, 2021, 1:20 pm

        If the clowns from Jan 6th would have pulled guns they would ALL BE DEAD OR CRITICALLY SHOT. The fact you thought you could actually succeed is why they are all in jail, been in jail, or on way to jail.

    • Hondo November 5, 2021, 11:44 am

      Quick question for you Bobo , do you still wet the bed ? You card carrying NAMBLA sicko.

    • Woodreaux May 27, 2022, 1:44 pm

      The only person shot and killed was an unarmed female veteran and that was by one of your Capitol police brethren. The same brethren who can be seen on video guiding in peaceful protesters into the Capitol. We all now realize January 6 was a setup by the Swamp to punish and scare patriotic Americans from holding their elected representatives accountable for the treason they have committed. We know the truth. We won’t forget.

  • Zupglick October 29, 2021, 10:36 am

    He’s gonna have the fibbies camped outside his door.

  • RANDY HILLYER October 29, 2021, 9:54 am

    We need more people to act instead of badmouth, you rock my friend and thanks so much for your service!

  • Rob Pridgen October 29, 2021, 9:25 am

    Way to go James! Thank you for your service and heroism! GREAT ATTIRE!

  • Joe Mannix October 29, 2021, 7:04 am

    What, no mention of his hat?

    • MeSeaHunt October 29, 2021, 8:47 am

      obviously you were a “navy” graduate with honors in reading……..

      • Yep yep October 29, 2021, 9:28 am

        😂😂😂😂 most people read the titles and make their own stories up……2021 shit

  • Let's go Brandon, FJB October 29, 2021, 6:55 am
