This man was a Marine Corporal who died in 2004. Threw himself on a grenade. A true American hero...

I read this earlier. I think he is definatly worthy of the honor. I wish he was alive to receive it himself. But he is a hero and sacraficed himself to save his fellow Marines. I hope his family is proud of the honor, though undoubtedly they miss him deeply.

Outstanding. What we have here ladies and gentlemen is bravery like no other. This medal is well deserved. I salute this Marine. May he forever find happiness in heaven with God.

The few. The proud. The Marines.
