This is what happens when you have a yahoo account. I was logging off my email ready to leave the computer a lone to have dinner and suddenly saw this article. Talk about heroes. What most surprised me is that they would actually drill into the Marines what this guy did. And what he said about anybody of the others would do the same, my ass, I was in the military and had two friend in the Marines before I joined the Spanish army. I´ve been where he has been certainly not in that tough area,which is the worst of that fucked up country, and seen what he has seen coming at him but never in my life would a drilled instinct,because it is true you do operate on instinct since you do practice over and over the same things, would kick in. I just run away, jump, and lay down. Talk about self sacrifice for this dude. This is really over the edge, bordering in suicide really. But holy shit Marine.
