L/Cpl Johua R. Mooi, USMC, Navy Cross
A real American Hero


From AmericanValor.net, here's some of the article;
His squad wiped out, Marine repeatedly charged the enemy and saved 10 comrades' lives

Joshua R. Mooi
U.S. Marine Corps / Navy Cross
Born July 26, 1986, in Oak Lawn, Ill., and raised in Bolingbrook, Ill.

Wife, Jessica.

Nicknamed “Jinx,” he joined the Marines with a delayed entry program after his junior year in high school. Served active duty from Aug. 16, 2004, to Aug. 15, 2008, and is still a lance corporal in the inactive ready reserves.

WHAT HE DID
Entered direct line of enemy fire six times in an effort to remove badly injured Marines who had been ambushed.

WHERE HE IS NOW
Lives in Naperville, Ill., and attends the College of DuPage. He plans to transfer to University of Illinois-Chicago in fall 2010 and major in criminology.


Keep in mind, at the time of this action, L/Cpl Mooi wasn't legally "mature" enough to buy even a single can of beer.

Yeah... right.

I'd have been honored to buy L/Cpl Mooi a beer! Where do we get men like him?

Make the Lord bless him & his family all the days of his life!

I went to the American Valor website. Couldn't help notice the photo of President Bush pinning a medal on another young hero. Don't expect to see the muslim in chief doing that. His agenda is quite clear.
