LCpl Cole Silver Star

Marines apply a tourniquet and pressure dressing to Lance Cpl. Jeffrey Cole, center, after he was shot twice in the left arm, in Marjah, Afghanistan, on Aug. 17, 2010. Cole received a Silver Star on Tuesday for his actions that day. (Marine Corps released photo)
"Lance Cpl. Jeffrey Cole, the Marine Corps’ newest Silver Star recipient. He received the award Tuesday at Camp Lejeune, N.C., for heroism in Marjah, Afghanistan, on Aug. 17, 2010.  Cole’s actions speak for themselves. As a machine gunner with 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, he took an M240B machine gun from a fellow Marine who was wounded, abandoning cover to engage insurgents who were less than 100 meters away. He was eventually shot twice in the arm, leaving him gushing blood from his brachial artery."
