He had 37 puncture wounds, exposed intestine, broken jaw, and eyes caked in blood. He was pronounced dead until he spit in the face of a doctor who was zipping him up in a body bag Six Hours in Hell - On May 2, 1968, a 12-man Special Forces patrol, which included nine Montagnard tribesmen, was surrounded by an NVA (North Vietnamese Army) infantry battalion of about 1,000 men. Benavidez heard the radio appeal for help and boarded a helicopter to respond. Armed only with a knife, he jumped from the helicopter carrying his medical bag and ran to help the trapped patrol. Benavidez "distinguished himself by a series of daring and extremely valorous actions... and because of his gallant choice to join voluntarily his comrades who were in critical straits, to expose himself constantly to withering enemy fire, and his refusal to be stopped despite numerous severe wounds, saved the lives of at least eight men." At one point in the battle an NVA soldier accosted him and stabbed him with his bayonet. Benavidez pulled it out, yanked out his own knife, killed him and kept going, leaving his knife in the NVA soldier's body. After the battle, he was evacuated to the base camp, examined, and thought to be dead. As he was placed in a body bag among the other dead in body bags, he was suddenly recognized by a friend who called for help. A doctor came and examined him but believed Benavidez was dead. The doctor was about to zip up the body bag when Benavidez managed to spit in his face, alerting the doctor that he was alive. Benavidez had a total of 37 separate bullet, bayonet, and shrapnel wounds from the six-hour fight with the enemy battalion - On February 24, 1981, President Ronald Reagan presented Roy P. Benavidez with the Medal of Honor. Reagan turned to the press and said, "If the story of his heroism were a movie script, you would not believe it - Thank you Benavidez for your heroism, your selfless sacrifices you made in Vietnam shall never be forgotten. Rest in Peace!🇺🇸

America, Bones, and God: AN IIZI ISE. Lance Cpl. William "Kyle" Carpenter and Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio were on a rooftop in Helmand Province in Afghanistan on November 21, 2010 when they were attacked by enemy fighters. A live grenade landed on the roof next to both men, and without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own safety, Carpenter threw himself between the grenade and Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio. Eufrazio received a shrapnel injury to the head from the grenade, while Carpenter's body absorbed a majority of the explosion severely wounding him, but saving the life of Corporal Eufrazio. Carpenter suffered a depressed skull fracture requiring brain surgery, multiple broken bones in his face, lost a third of his lower jaw, a collapsed right lung, and shrapnel wounds in his extremities. Doctors at a nearby military hospital pronounced him dead on arrival, sure he wouldn't survive. He spent 2 ½ years in hospital and had over 40 surgeries. On June 19, 2014, Corporal Carpenter received the Medal of Honor, the highest military honor one can receive. A true American hero! We cannot thank you enough for your selfless service to your fellow Marine and to this country. 🇺🇸 God bless you @chiksdigscars Repost from @remembermilitary americanveterans veterans usveterans usmilitary usarmy supportveterans honorvets usvets america usa patriot uspatriot americanpatriot supportourtroops godblessourtroops ustroops americantroops semperfi military remembereveryonedeployed deplorables deployed starsandstripes americanflag usflag respecttheflag marines navy airforce
