Our day may seem stressful, our Mondays may seem tough, and however, those that went before us felt the same stress and toughness, yet a bit different level. Never forget America's warriors. Time for a C-Gar!
Alwyn Cashe’s case for the Medal of Honor began almost as soon as he was awarded the Silver Star, the third-highest award for valor, for actions in Iraq in 2005.
Sgt. 1st Class Alwyn Cashe and his soldiers were on patrol in Samarra, Iraq, on 17 October, 2005, when their Bradley Fighting Vehicle hit an IED.
Though he was covered in diesel fuel and his uniform burned off his body, Cashe crawled out of the Bradley. Under a hail of enemy gunfire and despite certain death from the flames baking his body, Cashe returned to climb inside the Bradley, repeatedly pulling out soldiers until he had all six.
He left no one behind.
With burns over 70 percent of his body, Cashe died three weeks later on 8 November, 2005, at San Antonio Military Medical Center in Texas.
GySgt. Meyer ordered another Marine to take this picture. He forced a smile despite the pain, because he was worried about the impact his injuries would have on his squad. He hoped the picture would make it easier for them to deal with what happened.
Ya, we are Marines and tend to be a bit extreme, thus why I included this video as the Monday Motto video. Just think what you can accomplish and do! Start with Monday, make that change you have been putting off to do what you always wanted to do. You are only limited by your imagination!!
