A warrior in and out of the Octagon. U.S. Marine Brian Stann was awarded the Silver Star, one of the U.S.’s highest acclaims after his heroism in battle during Operation Matador. Not only that,¬† President George W. Bush made mention of Stann’s courage in the situation during a key speech in his presidency.
