Fire of Liberty


Here's a hearty congrats to Major William D. Chesarek Jr.(USMC) on being the first US soldier to receive the UK's Distinguished Flying Cross for for rescuing a wounded UK Marine during a combined UK/US mission in Al Amara. Adding even more importance to the ceremony is the fact that Queen Elizabeth II presented him with this coveted medal. See here and here for more on one our heroes.
