Brave Hero Jumped On a Grenade To Save His Fellow Marines. Are You Proud Of This Young Man?



There are many ways we show bravery and courage. It could be by standing up for yourself or another person or by fighting for what you believe in. For one young man, he showed bravery AND courage by putting his life on the line to save that of a comrade.

Some could say it was his duty as a marine, but whatever situation you are in, duty or not, to knowingly put yourself in a position that could humiliate you, torture you, or kill you is bravery.

Staring your fears right in the face and taking them on with the faith that you will come out on top is true courage and bravery.
