During the war on Terror, SEAL Michael Monsoor, Army PFC Ross McGinnis, and Marine Jason Dunham threw themselves onto grenades to save the lives of ther comrades, selflessly giving their lives to do so. They each received the Medal of Honor posthumously.

Now, another Marine, William Kyle Carpenter, will receive the Medal of Honor for covering a grenade... only he survived the experience.
