MilBlog tangent 

Remember 1st Lt. Brian Chontosh of the Marines? He kicked serious butt in an ambush on his Marines in Iraq. He killed at least 20 and wounded as many.

He just got the Navy Cross.

Why don't we hear more about the bravery of our troops? Why do we just get body count reports?

A long, drawn out tribute with pictures:

"...But that's probably not how he would tell it. He would probably merely say that his Marines were in trouble, and he got them out of trouble. Ooh-rah, and drive on."
