An Australian soldier, Corporal Daniel Keighran, has just been awarded that nation's highest honor for valor in action, the Victoria Cross for Australia (equivalent to the US Medal of Honor), for his actions in Afghanistan in 2010. Here's a video report of the presentation.
And here's video footage of the firefight during which his actions took place. I don't know whether he's among the soldiers shown in the video, but he was part of their unit.
You can read more about the award here. A tip o' the hat to reader Snoggeramus for sending me the link.
From all of us military and combat veterans to Corporal Keighran, a very respectful 'Saaaa-lute!'
