This was refreshing to wake up to. I know this isn't new since IIRC it occured on the original push to Baghdad. We could say that his initial reaction was classic "by the book" IAD -- attack the attacker. All too many fail to react this way. What I am referring to as MOH material is his actions, single handedly clearing out 200 M of trench using his own weapons then Iraqi weapons when his ammo was expended. Audy Murphy stuff. This is MOH material There is still a chance. I have seen DSCs and in this case Nacy Crosses upgraded.

That guy needs a wheelbarrow to carry a certain part of his anatomy. :D Awesome stuff thanks for sharing. Question though. If he was ordered will he still be eligible for the MOH? I thought that there were certain guide lines for it. Not saying one bit he doesn't deserve it, don't get me wrong.

I really don't know. I think some DCSs were upgraded. They were almost interim awards while waiting for Congress to act. I think!!

We're going to turn out all right as long as men like Brian Chontosh wear our uniform. Fabulous perspective. As long as this information makes it out, regardless of the major news outlets, we'll at least be doing something right.

I heard a rumor that he went to blade in getting some of those captured weapons.

Hard as woodpecker lips.

Semper Fi.

I was thinking almost the same thing. After what I've read the man deserves all America can give. Hard as nails.

Great post. Isn't Capt. Chontosh the individual that was featured in the Battle for Fallujah that aired on Fox? Can't remember the title, but it was an excellent documentary.
