"Marchu Talai!"

I have previously blogged about American servicemen in Iraq and Afghanistan who showed courage and determination in combat and sometimes received our nation's highest award for valor. However, stories like the following help us to remember that our allies in these wars have outstanding men serving in their armed forces as well.

Read the story of Sergeant Dipprasad Pun, a member of a British Ghurka regiment serving in Afghanistan. Last summer, he took on 30 Taliban attackers, and came out alive. At least three of his attackers did not. If nothing else, read the article and watch the video to find out why Sergeant Prasad yelled the exclamation that titles this post.
