“I am no hero by any means. It’s just moments like that that make you appreciate what you still have.” –Cpl. Robert D. Knutson
Many people would disagree with Cpl. Knutson and say that he IS a hero. Read the story and decide for yourself: http://bit.ly/AnibWF
Caption: U.S. Marine Cpl. Robert D. Knutson (left), a squad leader with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, and native of Lebanon, Pa., poses for a photo with a Marine in his squad before a patrol. During his last deployment to Helmand province’s Marjah district, Knustson saved the life of his best friend. Since he was promoted to squad leader for his current deployment in neighboring Nawa district, not a single Marine under his charge has been wounded or killed in action. (DVIDS photo by Cpl.
