UPDATE: I guess I should read our own archives: Matt sends me a reminder that their heroic deeds first appeared here back in May; take a look at the story here.
2 Marines are now due the Navy Cross for their actions in Ramadi-
Cpl. Jonathan Yale and Lance Cpl. Jordan Haerter saved Iraqi police and fellow Marines from a truck-driving suicide bomber, Marine brass say. The April attack could have slain dozens.
For refusing to yield their ground against a truck described as 'exactly like the Beruit bombing truck'' these two were nominated by Maj Gen John Kelly to receive the second-highest award for valor for Marines. Gen Kelly investigated this action himself. That is quite rare for a general officer to do.
Read the entire story here, at the (surprise, surprise!) LA Times.
God rest your souls, gentlemen. Honor is yours.
