USMC MoH

#2
True to his corps ethos, leave no one behind, brave man
 
#5
We live in a time, when great deeds are still done.

Somewhat puts the lie to comments about the "younger Generation", as well as the alledged certainty that Chav-ish, Gangsta type behaviour is the inevitable outcome of modern society.

Well done Cpl Meyer. Free beer for life!

Well deserved, on top just for getting the MoH, he gets $1k every month for life curtesy of the US Government for his duty!

Shame the British System doesn't do something like that!

Surprised that the USMC could not persuade him to stay in.

December 1, 2007 the rate became $1,129 per month..
Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick

To do what he did to save wounded colleagues would have been brave. To do what he did to recover fallen colleagues is in a league of it's own.

Truly impressive and a well deserved award.

I just hope The Afghans who assisted him receive some recognition.

The Royal Marines have yet to get a Victoria Cross since what....1942?

0311 - it's 1945, not 1942.

Cpl Tom Hunter (43 Cdo RM) was awarded a posthumous VC for his actions at Lake Commacchio on 2 Apr 1945. Also, LCpl Henry Harden RAMC, but attached to 45 Cdo, was awarded a posthumous VC for his actions at Brachterbeek in January 1945.

(Edit - if the question was meant in the way other Arrsers seem to have interpreted it, as opposed to being a genuine query, I echo their sentiments about onanism...)
