Can I get an Oorah?!?

30 Marine's, 250+ insurgents, and an 8 hour fire fight! "More than 50 enemy fighters were killed in the battle, and several more wounded, Marine officials said. A single Marine Corporal, serving as the unit’s designated marksman, killed 20 insurgents by himself, using only 20 shots to do it." And like the Marine Corps Times article says, this was "the kind of massive ambush and firefight that is the stuff of Marine legend." And better yet, not a single Marine was killed! Unfortunatly one Marine was injured, and prayers definatly go out to him and his family, aswell as those other 29 Marine's from 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines.
