Soldier Ended 20+ Enemy Lives Firing a Rifle off a Moving Tank

Billy Bad Ass of the Day

The U.S. Army has announced it will upgrade a former 3rd Infantry Division soldier's Silver Star to a Distinguished Service Cross. SSG Stevon A. Booker, who was killed protecting his platoon's flank, will receive the nation's second-highest award for valor.

Booker's unit — A 1/64-led an armored assault, known as a Thunder Run, which helped topple Saddam Hussein's regime. Booker's platoon began taking heavy small-arms and RPG fire.

“Booker immediately reacted — communicated the situation to his chain-of-command, returned fire with his mounted machine gun and reassured his crew that they would make it to their objective. When his crew machine gun malfunctioned, Booker completely disregarded his personal safety and took up an exposed prone position on the top of his tank.”

Under heavy enemy fire, Booker managed to destroy an enemy vehicle and end the lives of 20+ enemy using nothing but his rifle, while firing without cover from the top of a moving tank.

“Booker continued to engage the enemy and protect his platoon while exposed for nearly five miles until he was fatally wounded,” by ordnance that ricocheted off the tank itself.

    I also think mr. booker should have received the medal of honor he gave his one and only life he had no more to give to the country . Just a black man

    Please everyone….it has nothing to do with the color of someone’s skin. There is a process that is taken to be awarded the “ MOH “. This soldier did far more than almost every American Citizen and the upgrade in medal he received was done by a process. Those whom reviewed his file concluded the upgrade to the next level. This May be reviewed again. Trust me, they do not look at color of skin. May God Bless this soldier and his family.

    What qualifies for the Congressional Medal of Honor: Conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty.

    Qualifications met & exceeded

    In my opinion, SSG Booker, deserves the Medal of Honor for his courageous valor in holding off the enemy, with no regard for his own life to protect the lives of his men. I can only think of one reason why he didn’t, and it’s as plain as the white nose on my conservative face.

    Yours truly;
    Thomas M. Elliott.
