From Jay Hundley 05/25/06:

Sgt. Peralta truly was a hero. During a house to house search, Sgt Peralta was shot several times, but was still able to throw his wounded body upon an enemy grenade thus saving other members of his squad. Oh, and by the way, Sgt. Peralta was a Mexican immigrant who so loved this country and what it had given his family that he joined the Marines and volunteered for service in Iraq. Try finding any of this in a newspaper.
