Not just anyone.

September 11, 2010

“I didn’t run through fire to save a buddy,” Giunta told Junger. “I ran through fire to see what was going on with him and maybe we could hide behind the same rock and shoot together. I didn’t run through fire to do anything heroic or brave. I did what I believe anyone would have done.” (Washington Post)

Staff Sergeant Salvatora Giunta is to receive the Medal of Honor.  He will be the first living recipient since Vietnam of the nation’s highest award for valor.

He saved one of his fellow soldiers from being captured by the Taliban.  Not just anyone could or would do what he did.  He is a true hero.
