Dipprasad Pun, a Nepalese in the British Army, was given top honors for bravery by Queen Elizabeth for his heroic actions in Afghanistan. While the rest of us sit around and write blog posts, Pun managed to fight and kill over 30 Taliban fighters to defend his post–and all while without breaking a sweat.
Pun fired more than 400 rounds, launched 17 grenades and detonated a mine to repel the Taliban assault on his checkpoint near Babaji in Helmand Province, southern Afghanistan, last September…At one point, unable to shoot, he used his machine gun tripod to knock down a militant who was climbing the walls of the compound.
This sounds like something straight out of Call of Duty and Pun earned a Conspicuous Gallantry Cross, the second highest honor possible for bravery in the army. Also, I get first dibs on picking him for my team during the zombie apocalypse. So, what brave acts have you done recently?
