    Glad to hear that they honored a true hero.

    I am guessing that they will name a Welfare Office after the President.

    Truly there is no greater sacrifice than to lay down one's life for his comrades in arms. A true hero, a true patriot, a true american, A TRUE MARINE.

    RIP Cpl. Jason L. Dunham

    [email protected] I wish I had read this thread earlier. I was going by the "nut factory" (as my father, who worked there for 40 years called the BIW) and saw a lot of people outside the gate on what is usually just a deserted street. Based on one sign I saw that said something about 'peace" I almost stopped as I erroneously thought it must have been a stupid peace protest. ... (Quality ships - On time and under budget.) ... To fallen sailors let us sing Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing Our broken brothers let us bring To the Mansions of the Lord

    That is great!!!

    If anyone here is into reading then you should go pick up "The Gift of Valor". It is the story of Jason Dunham and the accounts of what happened.

    Can you believe that earlier the day Dunham and his platoon sergeant (I believe) were arguing about whether a helmet would buffer the blast of a grenade enough for a person to survive. It was almost like he knew it would happen. To me that makes it more amazing that that he stated he would do it if it happened and then actually did it when it did happen.

    RIP JD. A true hero!
