Just heard this one earlier today, not covered by the network news of course

Marine (sorry to say I do not recall his name)

His group was ambushed, he fought off the attackers with his m-16 and pistol, ran out of ammo and took weapons off the dead enemy including AK-47s and RPG. Fought them off and when it was all said and done he killed 20 insurgents.

Just another day at the office.

I guess Michael Moore missed interviewing this guy for his movie.

Semper Fidelis

Maybe one of you can find a link to this event. I know that this guy isn't asking for recognition or making a movie of himself so he can run for office later.

keepin' it real

These stories I'm sure will come to the surface in time. We have had a SAS trooper awarded a medal also for his brave efforts in fighting off overwhelming opposition. He's been gratious about the whole thing.
