Soldier jumps on grenade: Hero Marine who saved squad in Iraq denied Medal of Honor - TomoNews

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA — After years of fighting for a Medal of Honor nomination, the family of a heroic Marine sergeant has given up and instead accepted a Navy Cross on his behalf. Sgt. Rafael Peralta died in Iraq after absorbing the blow of a grenade that would likely have killed members of his team. He was just 25. Former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel rejected the Medal of Honor bid because the details of Peralta’s death are still under dispute. On the morning of November 15th 2004, Peralta’s team was clearing houses in Fallujah. Inside the fourth house, the team threw open a door to find several insurgents armed with AK-47s. The Marines exchanged fire with the men and killed one of the insurgents. During the fire exchange, a bullet struck Rafael, severely injuring him. Reports indicate Peralta was struck by a bullet from his own team as he tried to move out of the line of fire. As the remaining insurgents retreated, a grenade landed next to Peralta. Initial reports indicated he pulled the grenade under his body in an effort to shield his men from the explosion. But later reports contradicted that story. “I can remember people saying it would be the right thing to do, to say that he did more than he did,” said Reggie Brown, who was inside the house with Peralta, during a 2014 interview with the Washington Post. “I disagree with everything my fellow Marines proclaim to have seen,” Brown said. Other Marines have disputed Brown’s statement. Regardless, Peralta’s body did absorb the blow of the grenade, which normally has a 5-meter killing radius. On Monday morning, Peralta’s mother accepted the Navy Cross, which is the second highest award a Marine can receive. Peralta’s brother spoke at the ceremony and read the last letter he received from the fallen hero. In it, Peralta told his little brother to “just remember that I already lived my life to the fullest.” Peralta was a Mexican immigrant, who reportedly enlisted in the military the same day he received his green card. “His legacy will carry on as long as the Marine Corps stays alive,” Rick Peralta said during the ceremony. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Marines are never called soldiers, that is what Army personnel are called. Marines are called Marines. That said if there was so much confusion as to what happened then why award the second highest award? If this Marine received the second highest award for rolling onto a grenade to save other Marines then the award should be the Medal of Honor.

Vault Boy (1 год назад)
Guys.. He was given great honors, there is an active service ship baring his name and those can be active for upwards of 50 to 60 years; he was given a navy cross too. Which is a grand honor in itself; for a medal of honor to be given everything has to be clear; as far as I remember war commendations.

He also praised the Japanese when they attacked Pear Harbor on a history video, so much for a "Navy Veteran" right?

Just look at the body it's as easy as that was he shot in the back? If so then the Marines told the truth and he didn't smother the grenade. If he was shot in the front it's most likely true that he covered the grenade.
odie gwapo (2 года назад)
+Ethan Clemons are you sure it was on his abdominal ? and you sure there's a possibility of not damaging the head? it's your call
Ethan Clemons (2 года назад)
+odie gwapo So if he covered the frag with his stomach his back is fine so check for bullets on his back if theres bullet wounds there bingo. Also there is a huge noticable difference between shrapnel damage and a bullet wound
odie gwapo (2 года назад)
+Ethan Clemons oh men. like I said its logic. but questioning me "what" that means you don't understand. let me explain. you like to know where the bullet wound came but how? I tell you this. what happens to a person's body after been exploded near a tactical grenade?

To hear that there are disputes about his death and that he is essentially not worthy for the Medal is disgusting. How can just awarding him with the Medal be such a difficult task for the government to do. The fact that his family had to fight for months and still not get recognition highlights how it's pointless for a person to give their life for 'their' country.

Troll you are a true tardbag. He can't just pick a grenade up, stand, throw it, all when he's already wounded. Would you take a risk of the grenade bouncing back to you as it hit the wall because you missed the doorway? What if someone closed the door? What if you threw it, and because a grenade is like 40 bullets in every direction, you would have about a 6% chance of getting hit with two of those fragments? Actually do something productive in the comment section, although I am guilty of not doing that as of right now.

he is got a destroyer after his name that is equivelent to a medal of honer and becuz of the uncertinty of the incident the gov. cant just give away medal of honers like it is nothing look at the victorien cross 4 example its almost impossible to achieve it and thats how it should be this doesnt downgrade the heroic actions of this man . and btw  a medal of honer reciever never says that he deserved the medal .
