Marine Capt. Brian R. Chontosh
Just came across this story. If you haven't already read it, go here and have a look This isn't just some urban legend either, as the link is to the USMC website.
Here's an excerpt:
" While leading his platoon north on Highway 1 toward Ad Diwaniyah, Chontosh's platoon moved into a coordinated ambush of mortars, rocket propelled grenades and automatic weapons fire. With coalitions tanks blocking the road ahead, he realized his platoon was caught in a kill zone."
