Sgt. Paul Smith
For the first time since 1993, a Congressional Medal of Honor winner has been announced, honoring a soldier who fought in Iraq.
Sgt. Paul Smith died defending his 16 men, keeping them safe from being overrun by Iraqi forces by manning a .50 machine gun on a nearby abondoned APC.
He gave his life so that other might live.
I encourage to visit a web site set up in his honor by the St. Petersburg Times: The Last Full Measure of Devotion.
