Unparalleled bravery

If you want your heart to swell with pride and your eyes to fill with tears, read Confederate Yankee's post about Sgt. 1st Class Paul Ray Smith, 2nd Platoon, Bravo Company, 11th Engineer Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division. As always, when I read about this type of extraordinary sacrifice, I wonder what special fire burns in people who knowingly, willingly, risk their own lives to save others.
