"I Shall Not Leave My Post...''

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.
