the soldier i picked is tough because his helicopter crashed and he saved them all and he came under fire from three directions and he went and killed one bunker with his other soilder teamate and risked his own life to save his fellow soilders.He was in open fire and he didnt care. Senior Chief Slabinski carried a seriously wounded teammate through deep snow and led a difficult trek across precipitous terrain while calling in fire on the enemy, which was engaging the team from the surrounding ridges. Throughout the next 14 hours, Senior Chief Slabinski stabilized the casualties and continued the fight against the enemy until the hill was secured and his team was extracted.By his undaunted courage, bold initiative, leadership, and devotion to duty, Senior Chief Slabinski reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. thats why i like him hes a good guy.
the fact that he reacted and saved his friends in the face of danger and risked his life shows me that he is a good guy.
