Desmond Doss
For Desmond Doss I chose valor because he risked his own life to save the ones left behind. Everyday during the war, he ran back and forth taking men and lowering them down by a rope till safety. He was supposed to go back with the rest of the troop but he decided it wasn't fair to those who were still living to be left behind. One day he didn't just save his own men, but the enemy team as well. He eventually got wounded and help came for him but he didn't want to leave one more person behind.
Jay R. Vargas
For Jay R. Vargas I chose sacrifice because , when he was in the Vietnam war , he sacrificed his life when he called in amunition on him and his troops to take out the Vietnamise soldiers because it would save so many other troops in the Marines. Unfortunatly before he could call it in half of his company was shot down and wounded. He then sacrificed his life once again and dragged four wounded men loo yards while firing at the enemy , defending and protecting his them.
