1st Lt. Joshua R. Rosales, Navy Seaman Royce R. Ross and Cpl. Jared S. Nelson, came to the aid of a seven-year-old Iraqi girl who fell from a three-story building in Gharmah, Iraq. The three rushed her to Camp Fallujah's trauma center after Iraqi Police were unable to get her to a hospital in Fallujah. The girl sustained a fractured wrist, possible head and pelvic injuries. Doctors medevaced her to Coalition treatment facilities in Baghdad for further treatment. Medical officials said the Marines' quick reaction possibly saved the life of the little girl.
