The Iron Sergeant Advances

Working more on the "Sharing the Courage" series, #3: 
"The Iron Sergeant, Jesse Leach"

This was a dramatic event which happened in Iraq, to those Marines involved especially. Yet it showcases the type of day-to-day heroism that typifies Marines in combat--  the kind of thing that people back home need to know more about. That's why we are doing this series.

More to come this week... stay tuned!

I just saw this and it took my breath away! I am engaged to this wonderful hero Jesse E Leach! I would love to get a copy of this. My email address and how to reach Jesse himself is mouselover19@yahoo.com.

I lived this nightmare when it happened,but I can say this.Marines do their job well, and this picture is a small reminder of the honor and sacrafices that some of them will go through for another Marine.
