I was at this event. I don't quite remember it happening how it reads in this story. Even my award statement doesn't read as this story does. Neither does any of the other soldiers statements or awards? I received an award for that day....Weird,...I must just be a disgruntle soldier, because my award was knocked down for my share in this incident???? Hmmmm?
