Death of a Hero

Marine Lance Corporal Christopher Adlesperger was killed during combat operations in Fallujah in December last year. He has been nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery under fire during the battle to retake the city the previous month. If his nomination is approved, he will be the first Marine awarded the Medal since Vietnam.

The LAT's Tony Perry has an excellent piece describing Corporal Adlesperger's life and how he risked his life to protect fellow Marines. It is well worth reading.
