The Last Full Measure of Devotion

The story of Paul Smith should send chills down your spine. In the face of overwhelming odds, at the cost of his own life, he made a stand that saved his outgunned and outnumbered unit from certain annihilation. In a battle that should be recounted in every Basic Training class from now until the sun dies of old age, Sgt. Smith fought the enemy, exposed to their fire, and killed dozens. Surprised by an attack in an area thought to be clear, he took charge, reacted, and held the line. His stand was effective. The remaining enemy, their numbers cut nearly in half, fled the battle. Sgt. Smith was found, mortally wounded, with the enemy dead piled in front of him.
