Yes, America, the USN is down range…

FALMOUTH — If there was even a hint Navy Hospital Corpsman Michael Cardoza might be moved to another squad, Marine Sgt. Brian Smith fought to keep him among his men as they battled back the insurgency and looked for improvised explosive devices on the outskirts of war-torn Fallujah, Iraq.

“I knew that somewhere along the line, I would need him,” Smith said of Cardoza yesterday in a phone interview from his home in Maine.

That moment came in a flash during a terrifying summer night a year ago.

Full story. 


NOTE: Cardoza is just one of thousands of sailors serving in war zones around the world.
