Delta Force snipers and posthumous Medal of Honor recipients Randy Shughart and Gary Gordon.
"Clifford Chester Sims, a Staff Sergeant in Vietnam, and Medal of Honor recipient. Sims was honored for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty." He threw himself on a triggered booby-trap device, taking the entire blast to save his squad."
These two brave Delta Force Snipers volunteered to be inserted at the BlackHawk crash site in Mogadishu in an attempt to save the pilot, Michael Durant. They knew that it was very likely that they would not survive. Durant was captured but later released. Master Sergeant Gary Gordon and Sergeant First Class Randall Shughart were killed in action. These are true American heroes.
