That fine young man grew up one town over from where I did; I've been watching the story since he died, because not approving the MOH would have been a travesty.

The original full story of his incredible actions were published in the Wall Street Journal, and are here http://joatmoaf.typepad.com/i_love_j...al_dunham.html in a military-oriented blog.

I subscribe to the “Marine Corps Times” and that is where I first read the account of his heroism which led to his MOH award.

Dam, those brave boys are so young.

God Bless the men and women of our military.

Rest in peace valiant young warrior, your efforts will not be in vain.
