Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. The first Marine got shot and the second came to get him and got shot dead a third and fourth would also get wounded but succeeded in retrieving the two Marines. So to recap: four Marines three wounded one KIA. No one left behind. God Bless Our Troops!
If this doesn’t pull at your heart strings, you have no soul.
There was actually no KIA or “shot dead”. Gunnery Sergeant Shane was dragging a fellow wounded Marine whom had been wounded (shot through the femoral artery). Gunnery Sergeant was struck in his body armor by enemy machine gun fire before a round found his lower back as he bent over. The third is actually a Navy Corpsman - Joel Lambott. This all happened during operation Al Fajr in Fallujah.
When I first found and posted the pics from the internet, I posted the info I found with the pictures at that time, not much info and apparently wrong =/
Since reading your reply to this post, I did more googling and found this info on the matter: Gunnery Sgt. Ryan P. Shane breaks cover to rescue a fatally wounded Marine while under enemy fire in Fallujah. Seconds later he is hit several times by enemy rounds, The Marines respond with a high rate of suppressive fire as Navy Corpsman HM Joel Lambott rescues the wounded
May God Bless them all <3
