#MARINE OF THE WEEK // Gunnery Sgt. Juan J. Rodriguez-Chavez
Marine Embedded Training Team 2-8, Regional Corps Advisory Command 3-7
Kunar Province, Afghanistan, Sept. 8, 2009
Award: Navy Cross
Assigned to the security element while other members of his team led two platoons of Afghan National Security Forces into Ganjgal Village for a pre-dawn meeting with village elders. then-Staff Sergeant Rodriguez-Chavez heard over the radio that the dismounted patrol was ambushed by roughly fifty enemy fighters in fortified positions. With four members of his team in immediate danger of being surrounded, he drove a gun-truck, with one other Marine as his gunner, forward into the kill zone of a well prepared ambush. With only the machine gun fires of his gunner to suppress the enemy, he ignored heavy enemy fires and drove the vehicle into the kill zone three times to cover the withdrawal of the combined force and evacuate two dozen members of the Afghan National Security Forces. With complete disregard for his own personal safety, he made a fourth trip into the deepest point of the kill zone in another gun-truck with three other U.S. personnel to recover the bodies of the fallen team members. He positioned his vehicle to shield the U.S. members from the intense enemy fire as they dismounted to recover their bodies. By his decisive actions, bold initiative, and selfless dedication to duty, Staff Sergeant Rodriguez-Chavez reflected great credit upon himself and the Marine Corps and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

A salute to those before us. Fairbairn Sykes blades, snakewood and a couple pearl resin Burl mix. Going up Tuesday with some other great pieces. Throw a toast up for our Warfighters that worked for the freedoms we hold today along with our allies of freedom around the world. #LLTB #honor #frogman #SAS #socom #halffaceblades #sealteam #England #Australia #oif #oef #WWII #MEMORIALDAY #freedom #America

Our nations greatest heroes happen to be our sons,daughters,brothers,cousins,parents,etc. Many brave soldiers went through a rigorous process simply to be battle ready and when duty called they went! Some never came back and many came back... but never the same! In respectful honor of these heroes... WE SALUTE YOU! @vanillagorillafit ⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️🔵🔵TB💪A🔵🔵⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️

Memorial Day. I'm so thankful to be able to remember those we lost.. I'm alive. I made it when others didn't, and sometimes that's a hard feeling to live with. So I will never let their sacrifices go in vain. I will always remember, and I will always make sure their memories and legacy live on. We won't forget. We will NEVER forget you. Our fallen heroes of FOB Falcon, our fallen heroes everywhere. We also remember our fallen heroes who lost the battle to PTSD. Rest easy. We love you.

Dear America, Today is a day you celebrate with barbecuing and beer because a very small percentage of Americans have sacrificed their lives to ensure you can live yours as free Americans. While you spend time with your family and friends today please take a second to acknowledge the sacrifice made by the men and women who fought and died for you. These Warriors died for many reasons. Some died for their country and flag. Most would say they died protecting their brothers & sisters in combat.
An American warrior is a fascinating/amazing person. A person this country should regret loosing. Warriors built this country and have defended it, since birth. Warriors continue to shape this country even after EAS.
To my fallen brothers and sisters. We will never forget the sacrifice you and your family made to ensure our freedom in this amazing country. Thank you and I love each and everyone of you. Semper Fi

America, these men and women deserve more than a day of recognition for the sacrifices they made. Most wouldn't even want a thank you because they died for what they believe in and most if not all would do it again.
John 15:13, No greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends

If you are tagged in this post you are an influential person that people follow and respect. Please show your respect and gratitude by creating a similar post thanking the families and American warriors that have sacrificed everything for you and this Country.

"We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue." - President James A Garfield

Today is a day about remembrance, of those men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice. They gave their life's for us, so we could live free in the pursuit of happiness... So, today, when you're at the beach catching a sun tan or enjoying a BBQ with family and friends, take a moment and think about the men and women that made it possible for you to do so... Freedom is never free.
Thank you, God Bless.
Semper Fidelis

It's funny when I joined the army the last thing I was thinking about was losing some men that you fight with day in and out. of course it was never perfect, cussing each other out and then turn around and grab a drink. but when you have to deal with each other in 100+ degree weather, sandstorms, IEDs, riding down roads KNOWING it's a high possibility that it might be your last. They became my brothers, the war is not over once you take off the uniform. It only begins and we don't take notice because we were so used to doing one thing and that's making it home to our families. so to know each one of them personally was an honor and to lose them hurt most because we've watched each other at our highs and lows. so what we used to drink, fight, cuss, party but when it was time to strap those boots up we handled business, even though me and Kees was joint at the hip in Iraa we all equally fought for one another......BROTHERHOOD!!!! GLORY BOUND!!! #12ROUNDS #RIPKEES #RIPCHUCK #RIPRICE #ABTRY #SVCBTRY #RIPCOLWHITE #244 #OEF #OIF
