Sgt. Michael DiMauro, 2LAR, Military Vanguard Award

Sgt. Michael DiMauro, 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, has been selected by the Marine Corps for the prestigious Military Vanguard Award given annually to one member from each military service who earns distinction through acts of heroism.

In AFGN, DiMauro rescued a drowning Marine who fell into the Helmand River. DiMauro dove in after the Marine, brought him back to the bank, cleared his lungs of water and once the corpsman took over dove back into 15 feet of water until he recovered the missing Marine's rifle.
