"Rangers lead the way." Living that sacred motto, selflessly, every day, is United States Army Ranger, Staff Sergeant Austin McCall. In Afghanistan, he and his patrol were on the trail of a suspected suicide bomber. Sergeant McCall cautiously entered a dwelling, then, alone, moved out into the court-yard, coming face-to-face with the suspect who held two grenades. McCall shot the individual the moment he tossed one grenade, while the other one then dropped to the floor. The first failed to go off, but the second one did, sending shrapnel into the side of the Sergeant's face, severely injuring him. Despite his wounds, he and his men continued to root out and eliminate other enemy on the premises. Only then, would Sergeant McCall allow his wounds to be treated.
