PFC Tschiderer, I salute you!

Account of Incident from 256th Brigade Combat Team

One thing that burns my butt is that the MSM wouldn't tell the story of a hero. Naw, they rather worry about whether a terrorist get's his daily tea.

They ought to be rightly ashamed of themselves, for missing this, what a disgrace. That aside, read this of a real American Hero. He isn't the only one, because hundreds of our men and women perform heroic service everyday in this conflict, and nobody would hear it except for the bloggers. So now the story of PFC Stephen Tschniderer:

"During a routine patrol in Baghdad June 2, Army Pfc. Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, was shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van just 75 yards away. The incident was filmed by the insurgents.

Tschiderer, with E Troop, 101st “Saber” Cavalry Division, attached to 3rd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment, 256th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, was knocked to the ground from the impact, but he popped right back up, took cover and located the enemy’s position.

After tracking down the now-wounded sniper with a team from B Company, 4th Battalion, 1st Iraqi Army Brigade, Tschiderer secured the terrorist with a pair of handcuffs and gave medical aid to the terrorist who’d tried to kill him just minutes before."

This soldier does this old soldier and all those who went before him proud to have worn the uniform.
