    Regimental Combat Team-7

    Lt. Col. Nicholas F. Marano, commanding officer of the Twenty-nine Palms, Calif.-based 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, addresses Marines and sailors of his battalion after awarding the Silver Star to Sgt. Jarred L. Adams during a ceremony at the Marines' camp at Al Qa'im, Iraq, June 10, 2006. The Silver Star is the U.S. military's third highest award for combat heroism after the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. Adams, a 22-year-old from Wasilla, Ala., was awarded the medal for his actions during combat while serving in Iraq last year. Disregarding his own wounds, Adams ran through enemy fire to retrieve the body of a fellow Marine who was killed during combat operations near the Iraqi-Syrian border in January 2005. "I don't think I did anything any other Marine wouldn't do," said Adams. "I would do it again if it came down to it." (Photo by Cpl. Antonio Rosas)
