💥ATTENTION MARINES!! Here’s a little something you need to know about Sgt Maj.(Ret) John Canley. America’s newest Medal of Honor recipient, and Marine.
“While serving as Company Gunnery Sergeant, he fought off multiple enemy attacks as his company moved along a highway toward Hue City to relieve friendly forces who were surrounded. On several occasions, despite his own wounds, he rushed across fire-swept terrain to carry wounded Marines to safety. When his commanding officer was severely wounded, he took command and led his company into Hue City. While in command of the company for three days, he led attacks against multiple enemy-fortified positions while exposing himself to enemy fire to carry wounded Marines to safety. On February 6, at a hospital compound, he twice scaled a wall in full view of the enemy to aid wounded Marines and carry them to safety." Most MOH recipients pay the ultimate price to receive our nation’s highest honor. We’re glad to see this one, a Marine, Standing tall, and being honored as a hero. ~R1.
