Greater Love Has No Man

Two Marines killed in Iraq by an explosion from a car bomb have received the Navy Cross.

The two Marines, Lance Cpl. Jordan Haerter and Cpl. Jonathan Yale, were guarding the gate at Joint Security Station Nasser when a truck loaded with explosives attempted to penetrate the defenses leading into the base. Haerter and Yale engaged the truck with small arms, resulting in the truck exploding in their immediate vicinity, killing them.
