Sergeant 1st class Randall Shughart was a member of the Army Special forces and in 1993 he volunteered for a mission that left with little chance for survival but the sergeant could not bear to see his fellow service men be left on the battlefield wounded and at the hands of an angry mob, and so, he and a fellow sniper fought their way through the enemy filled mazes of Mogadishu Somalia to the four critically injured crew members of a downed Blackhawk helicopter. After pulling the crewmen to safety, he placed himself between them and an overwhelming number of enemies defending his comrades until his ammunition ran out, it cost him his life but it saved the crew of the Blackhawk. For his actions, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
