Spc. Monica Brown, * 19 *, an Army medic. A vehicle was hit by an IED, her sergeant yelled, "Doc, let's go," and she went. She spotted two injured soldiers, under intense fire dragged them to cover, then received mortar shells and covered the injured with her body and started repairing them through a two-hour fight. She saved them both, and received the Silver Star.
Shortly after Lance Corporal Liam Tasker of the British Royal Army was killed in a firefight with the Taliban, his devoted Army dog Theo suffered a seizure and passed away as well. Some say of a broken heart. Hope they are together in heaven.
