Here is a good story to read about from one of the many Armys finest.

"Army Spc. Monica Lin Brown is the second woman since World War II to be awarded the Silver Star.
Dodging insurgent gunfire, a 19-year-old Lake Jackson soldier used her body to shield five injured comrades after a roadside bomb struck her convoy in Afghanistan last spring. That act of bravery has earned her the Silver Star. After the explosion, she braved insurgent gunfire and mortars to reach five wounded soldiers. She shielded them as she administered aid and helped drag them to safety, the military said."
