Greater love hath no man than this…

By lex, on January 6th, 2007

Jason L. Dunham, Corporal of Marines, Medal of Honor winner **– the first of the “Long War,” and the first Marine so honored since 1970.

On April 14, 2004, in Iraq near the Syrian border, the corporal used his helmet and his body to smother an exploding Mills Bomb let loose by a raging insurgent whom Dunham and two other Marines tried to subdue.

The explosion dazed and wounded Lance Cpl. William Hampton and Pfc. Kelly Miller. The insurgent stood up after the blast and was immediately killed by Marine small-arms fire.
