Jason Lee Dunham was a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for actions while serving with 3rd Battalion 7th Marines during the Iraq War. While on a patrol in Husaybah, his unit was attacked and he deliberately covered an enemy grenade to save nearby Marines. When it exploded Dunham was gravely injured and died eight days later. On 14 April 2004, the battalion commander's convoy came under attack near Husaybah, Iraq, and 4th Platoon was dispatched on patrol to investigate. Dunham and his squad intercepted a number of cars spotted near the scene of the attack, which the patrol detained to search for weapons. When the squad approached a white Toyota Land Cruiser and discovered AK-47s, the driver exited and attacked the Marines in an attempt to flee. Dunham responded by closing in for hand-to-hand combat to subdue him. During the fighting, the individual dropped an armed Mills 36M hand grenade. Dunham, to save the rest of his men, deliberately threw himself on the grenade, attempting to use his PASGT helmet to shield himself and others from the explosion, warning the others to "watch his hands." Dunham, the insurgent, and two other Marines nearby were all wounded by grenade fragments. Although the enemy fighter recovered sufficiently to flee the scene, he was shot dead while trying to escape. Corporal Dunham was severely wounded by the grenade blast, and was immediately evacuated. Within days, he arrived at National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland in a coma, where he was being treated for his injuries. After being diagnosed with brain damage and deemed unlikely to recover, he was taken off of life support eight days later, on 22 April 2004. Shortly beforehand, Commandant of the Marine Corps Michael Hageepresented Dunham with the Purple Heart. Dunham's parents were at his bedside when he died. May we never forget our heroes ❤ #lessweforget #neverforget #medalmonday #hero #jasonleedunham

FDNY Ladder 3 Truck At 911 Memorial Museum. (One of the few areas where photography is allowed). A solemn and sad reminder of a terrible tragedy and loss of life. As a firefighter and as a simple member of the human race there have been few places that have touched me and made as big an impact as being on such scared ground and seeing this ladder truck.
Nice new 2018 100th Aniversary ww1 50p

As we grow older some people settle for what they are comfortable with and have done great in. They don't want to learn something new and entire an new territory. We tend to let go of the purity of what we were born to be; curiousness. Many people define curiosity as a curse due to the fact of it being a major risk that can waste time and most looked at as wasting money that they cannot afford or see themselves spending over something "silly". Don't forget that making mistakes while you can and when you can are the best ways for development. As long as you see within yourself that your failures are lessons to become greater; you are already on your way to do something amazing! #n .a4u #madness #curious #puresouls #beyou #behappy #neverforget #lessweforget #happynewyear #happinessquotes #happiness #boxingday #toronto #brampton #greatness #children #soul
At the Australian War Memorial, they do not celebrate the generals or heros but instead the ‘unknown Australian’ with an unknown body interred in the memorial. The plaque on the wall even said that the generals were the ones who sometimes made incompetent decisions that led to unnecessary deaths. I liked the words that the memorial is not about glorifying war, but reminding us all about how devastating it can be. #australianwarmemorial #warmemorial #lessweforget #canberra #australiancapitalterritory #australia
#Tbt I think this was from 08, graveside phase 3. We called it the #whoredoor and no it wasn’t easy. #lessweforget #hookum
This year's purge was devastating. We lost roughly 90% of our content, people we follow are dusted and in the end..only the strong survived. - - Good news! Both "Deep Thoughts" and "Wtf! Emily" hid and took shelter. They survived! But not without wounds. Sadly tho, POH was badly beaten. Skull fractures, internal bleeding, heavy lacerations. POH is going to need some intense plastic surgery. - - Keep an eye out for POHs return with a whole new face!! - - #purge #thefallen #lessweforget #slaughter #catalyststudios #pohpodcast #WTFEmily #deepthoughts #yyc #calgary #art #artist #yycart #yycartist #calgaryart #calgaryartist #calgaryevents #toronto #yyz #winnipeg #ywg #edmonton #yeg #vancouver #yvr #montreal #yul #podcast #podcasting #yycpodcast
Desmond Doss, AKA "the medic who fought a war with no weapon". He served in WW2 and was awarded for heroic acts during the Battle of Guam and the Philippines, and he did it all without ever touching a weapon. Doss refused to kill an enemy soldier or carry a weapon into combat because of his personal believes as a Seventh-day Adventist. He consequently became a medic assigned to the 2nd Platoon, Company B, 1st Battalion, 307th Infantry, 77th Infantry Division. While serving with his platoon in 1944 on Guam and the Philippines, he was awarded two Bronze Star medals with a "V" device, for exceptional valor in aiding wounded soldiers under fire. During the Battle of Okinawa, he saved the lives of 75 wounded infantrymen atop the area known by the 96th division as the Maeda Escarpment or Hacksaw Ridge. Doss was wounded four times in Okinawa, and was evacuated on May 21, 1945, aboard the USS Mercy. Doss suffered a left arm fracture from a sniper's bullet and at one point had seventeen pieces of shrapnel embedded in his body. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in Okinawa. Never forget our heroes ❤ #medalmonday
