From BitsBlog and The Q and O Blog:

Sgt. Maj. Ron Riling, the 4th Infantry Division's command sergeant major, was serving with the 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division in Rammadi on April 6, 2003. He was awarded the Silver Star for his actions during a fierce fight in which 12 Marines lost their lives.

Riling and his brigade commander, Col. Buck Connor, were notified Marines attached to their brigade were pinned down by enemy fire. Their brigade combat team had been enhanced by two Marine Corps battalions and several National Guard soldiers.

Riling said the decision to enter the fray was an easy one. "The colonel looked at me and said 'Sergeant Major, let's go.'"

With your heart in your mouth - that's the only way I can read these accounts of unspeakable bravery, courage, heroism - go there and read the whole thing.

You will be glad . . .

You did.
