SALUTE TO LCPL. MICHAEL TOBY, USMC
LCPL Michael Toby, USMC Machine Gunner, wounded by Iraqi indirect fire (unsure if it was arty or mortars) on April 7, 2003 during the assault on Baghdad. He was wounded when we received indirect fire at the Diyala Bridge prior to crossing the bridge and proceeding to head to Baghdad, which was 7 miles away. Toby was awarded the Purple Heart, sustained massive leg injuries, was from Montana, and held the rank of Lance Corporal (LCPL). This photo was taken by one of the photographers from a major publication, that was embedded in our unit when we crossed the Iraqi border, and displays the comaraderie of Infantry Marines in combat coming together to take care of one of their own during a Med Evac.
