Big Brass Ones

2/7 Marine awarded Navy Cross. And meritorious promotion to Corporal. Go. Read.

Dude was manning the turret machine gun in an MRAP. Vehicle took an RPG. Which stunned the driver.  So the vehicle was stuck in the killing zone.  And partially amputated the gunner's leg. And he stayed at his position returning effective fire and blowing up bad guys.

And reloaded the gun, which requires presence of mind and dexterity.


Jesus wept - where do we get men like that?
