An incredible story 

if you ask me.
"This wasn't a John Wayne move," said Command Sgt. Maj. Gary J. Coker, the top enlisted man in the 11th Battalion, who was near the battle. "He was very methodical. He knew he had the gate and he wasn't going to leave it and nobody was going to make him leave it."

No surprise this was deemed worthy of only the third medal of honor since the Vietnam war.

thanks for your recognition of a true hero.
Indeed. Just as a note, I believe the only other two medals of honor awarded since Vietnam were to two Delta Force snipers killed in Modadishu defending a downed Black Hawk helicopter (as seen in the film 'Black Hawk Down').
