Gunnery Sergeant Jolly


Up. Identified. Lase. Fire. On the way.

A story (unknown until recently) about one of the heroes of Benghazi:

Jolly, who declined a request for an interview, would ultimately be awarded the Navy Cross for his heroism there. The soldier with him, Master Sgt. David Halbruner, received the Army's Distinguished Service Cross. The valor awards are exceeded only by the Medal of Honor.

Little has been known about Jolly’s actions in Benghazi. There was no public ceremony when he received his valor award and, until recently, his name has not been publicly tied to the mission in media reports.
Enjoy the article! And join me in offering a long-distance salute to Gunny Jolly (now, Master Sergeant (retired)).
