Got a metal plate in his head for his efforts
My dad has 2 Bronze stars, a Silver Star, and a Purple heart after taking a bullet in the leg in Desert Storm and carrying a Marine who took a bullet to the chest to safety.
I received 3 Bronze Stars, a Silver Star, and a Purple heart throughout 4 tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I had a roadbomb blow up beside me, killing my two buddies beside me and sending shrapnel into my knee, hip, and side. I drug 2 Marines to a ditchbank with my knee in pieces and attempted first aid on one until help arrived.
Just a little backstory on the Poot-Hair
