Six full (online) pages in the L.A. Times about this yesterday. Very nice.

The incident for which he’s been cited is described on page four. His squad was ambushed by a troop of tweaked-out jihadis while approaching a house in Fallujah; two of his comrades were wounded and his best friend was killed instantly.

He took a position on the roof next door and killed all of them. At least 11, maybe more.

A month later he was sent back into Fallujah and got shot in the heart.
