News: A True Hero 

Ollie North's latest column focuses (the last half anyway) on the story of Sgt. Rafael Peralta, a United States Marine in Iraq.

I had not heard of Sgt. Peralta before North's piece. After reading it, I, along with North, wonder why I haven't. It's a tragic tale of heroism not usually seen outside of a motion picture dramatization.

I urge you to go read it right now, and afterward, to say a prayer for Peralta, his brothers-in-arms, and his family.
