I’ve always wondered what I’d do if I ever found myself in a dire emergency. I haven’t been tested, so my guesses range from total collapsing to being somewhat useful. Gunnery Sgt. Ralph Scott doesn’t have to guess. In Fallujah, he proved that, when he is under fire, he acts with the highest degree of bravery, honor and altruism and — he’s now getting a well-deserved reward for that.
UPDATE: Gunnery Sgt. Scott wasn’t only brave, he was lucky, since he survived his heroic acts. This is the story of a legendary British bomb disposal expert, a man who saved countless lives, whose timing was up on his very last day in the field. So sad.
