Fire, Friends, and Memes: RESPECTR RESPECT Esate US ARM In September 2008, Brown was conducting route security in Kandahar, Afghanistan. He and his Soldiers began receiving indirect fire, which quickly changed to direct fire, coming at them from different directions. As he went to help the men in the M1151 humvees in front of him, Brown entered an enemy engagement area. It was there that he was struck by an improvised explosive device - Brown suffered third degree burns to 30 percent of his body - mostly places his individual body armor did not cover - and lost his left index finger in the accident. He was evacuated and, once in the United States, was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; BAMC is a level I trauma center and home to the Army Burn Center - Thank you Mr. Brown for your selfless sacrifices!🇺🇸 And thank you for being a true hero! - - - 1 like=1 Salute 1 Follow =10 Salute - - ❎ DOUBLE TAP pic 🚹 TAG your friends 🆘 DM your Pics-Vids 📡 Check My IG Stories 💥Check the link in Bio 👉@veterancollection 🔥Follow us @veterancollection - Repost @veteranownedworld - 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 - usarmy armylife usnavyseal navylife militarylife militarylove usmilitaryacademy navylife usmilitary usarmyveteran veterans supportthetroops supportourveterans usnavy USMC USCG usmarines armedforces semperfi usairforcepride usairforce hooah Oorah armystrong infantry activeduty supportourtroops usarmedforces

America, Fire, and Memes: JONATHAN WILLIAM GIFFORD GY SGT US MARINE CORPS AFGHANISTAN AUG 11 197T JUL 29 2012 NAVY CROSS HERO OF THE DAY: Marine Gunnery Sgt. Jonathan W. Gifford of Palm Bay, Fla., died at age 34 on July 29, 2012 in Badghis province, Afghanistan, while conducting combat operations. During the morning patrol, he saw three of the Afghan special operations commandos he was advising hit by enemy small arms fire. Immediately, he got behind the wheel of an all-terrain vehicle, roaring across 800 meters of ground unprotected to come to the aid of the wounded commandos. With the help of another Marine, he performed first aid on the Afghan soldiers and moved them to a landing zone so a helicopter could extract them for medical care. Then, he crossed back over the same open terrain to help the other Afghan commandos in the unit, who were now under enemy fire. During the attack he led, he took out an insurgent who was firing from a window and climbed a building housing enemy fighters, dropping a grenade down the enemy chimney. He kept pressing the attack until he fell mortally wounded by enemy machine gun fire, according to his medal citation. Gunnery Sgt.
