H.R. 8276 has been signed into law by President Trump that will allow the Department of Defense to make a formal recommendation for Alwyn Cashe to receive the Medal of Honor. While in Iraq in October 2005, Army Sgt. 1st Class Alwyn Cashe saved six soldiers from a burning vehicle. After the Bradley Fighting Vehicle hit an IED, Cashe ran back into the vehicle multiple times while covered in fuel to pull out his soldiers. He suffered from second and third degree burns that covered 72% of his body, and he died while at an Army hospital in Texas. “Sgt. Cashe saved my life. With all the ammo inside that vehicle and all those flames, we’d have been dead in another minute or two,” commented Gary Mills, who was one of the people Cashe pulled out.
