Here’s a story you won’t hear much on the news, unfortunately – about Brian Chontosh, a hero who saved the lives of his fellow Marines and faced danger with total disregard for his own safety. News outlets today are focused on the doom and gloom, the depressing and shocking elements, and never highlight amazing stories about amazing people often enough. From the Marines military site:

“He then directed his driver into the enemy trench, where he exited his vehicle and began to clear the trench with an M16A2 service rifle and 9 millimeter pistol. His ammunition depleted, Chontosh, with complete disregard for his safety, twice picked up discarded enemy rifles and continued his ferocious attack.”

Spread the word, don’t let the CNN’s of the world keep you in the dark to such brave actions.
