"...Peralta was under consideration for the Medal of Honor four years ago, but the Pentagon questioned the reliability of eyewitnesses, who said Peralta scooped the grenade under him but disagreed about details such as which hand he used.

(Speaking of Leon Panetta and Robert Gates) I wonder how many of these panty-wearing limpwristed froo-froo 'tards have ever had a @#%$ grenade chucked at them?

Would their Rambo arses have the presence of mind to notice which freaking hand the man used to pull it under his body as it exploded?

Gimme a #@%$ break.

This man deserves The Medal.

Panetta's "logic," followed to full extension, would also decree that Sgt Peralta does not merit the Navy Cross, nor any other valor medal for that matter.

How many freakin eye witnesses do they need? CLEARLY the man knowingly chose to give his life for his unit.
