Posted on 01/16/2014 9:31:05 AM PST by virgil283
"When their mounted patrol came under intense enemy fire, Corporal Wooldridge and his squad dismounted and maneuvered on the suspected enemy location. Spotting a group of fifteen enemy fighters preparing an ambush, Corporal Wooldridge led one of his fire teams across open ground to flank the enemy, killing or wounding at least eight and forcing the rest to scatter. As he held security alone to cover his fire teams withdrawal, he heard voices from behind an adjacent wall. Boldly rushing around the corner, he came face-to-face with two enemy fighters at close range, killing both of them with his M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon.
As he crouched back behind the wall to reload, he saw the barrel of an enemy machine gun appear from around the wall. Without hesitation, he dropped his empty weapon and seized the machine gun barrel. He overwhelmed the enemy fighter in hand-to-hand combat, killing him with several blows to the head with the enemys own machine gun."

I am honored and proud that this man and many like him are out there still.
He successfully went vidgame-bat$hit on the ba$stards and saved lives.
Ah, pugil stick training pays off. Semper Fi !
That's just seriously badass. No two ways about it. Chuck Norris wishes he was CPL Wooldridge.
A true man.
(And we all know physical fitness ‘normed’ standards for women in combat would have achieved the same result; i.e., beating the pig slime to death with his own weapon).
Cpl Woodridge, you are one hard charging badass. Take someone’s gun from them in the middle of a firefight and beat them with it ... just damn!
Ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
