    printed version:

    ...Displaying courage and leadership throughout the Topeka area of operation, he led Marines in the neutralization of 450 Improvised Explosive Devices and the capture of 36 weapons caches....while on an improvised explosive device response, with total disregard to his personal safety, he saw Soldiers in danger and immediately performed a manual render-safe of an improvised explosive device while the patrol was under.... he led his Marines from the front with stalwart leadership....fearless actions directly reduced potential injury or death blah, blah, blah

    real version cliffs: manually neutralizing IEDs (some while taking fire)

    Jyokker....even a blind squirrel gets a nut now & then

    It is good to see that people are getting medals for their actions in combat. I wish more people, obviously ones who earned it like yourself, were awarded these higher medals.

    No, stand at attention, right face, get pinned, shake, salute, left face, parade rest until the speaker is done talking... the left face and parade rest because it was the Bronze Star, not an Achievement medal
