Tough Guy Awards 3

Darwin works both ways, and man didn’t get to the top of the food chain by accident. The “Tough Guy Award” is the opposite of the Darwin Award.

This week's Tough Guy is Cpl. Samuel Toloza of El Salvador. While serving in Iraq last year as part of El Salvador's distinguished contribution to the multi-national forces protecting the Iraqi's emerging democracy Cpl. Toloza's unit was attacked by insurgents. After 13 of his 17-man unit were killed or wounded and out of ammunition Cpl. Toloza continued to carry the fight to the enemy by whipping out his pocket knife, rushing the enemy gunmen, and stabbing them until reinforcements arrived. He later explained his actions by saying, "We never considered surrender. I was trained to fight until the end." Cpl. Toloza, I'm glad you're on our side.
