Staff Sgt. Robert Miller was moving with his men through the Kunar province of Afghanistan when they were ambushed.
Pushing ahead while ordering the others to take cover, Miller became a target for enemy insurgents. It let his squad retreat and regroup but left him exposed.
Shot through both sides of his chest, he kept firing and radioing the enemy’s positions. He died before his teammates could extract him from the battle, saving his unit and killing 16 insurgents and wounding 30 others.
His family was presented last year with his Medal of Honor.
Lesson: Help your people—provide knowledge and a shield.
