Absolutely incredible story (hat tip Gorgomons). The Washington Post does a great job here. Twelve men against hundreds. A stirring victory against horrific odds. Not only is he a Green Beret but his first two names are "John Wayne." I do wish I knew how to embed links because I would link to the movie John Wayne is reviled for the "Green Berets." The only pro-Vietnam movie made during the Vietnam war. Afghanistan is going to be a tough nut and we have sent some pretty hard core guys there.
