July 7, In the years since Marine Gunnery Sgt. Price, along with fellow Gunnery Sgt. Jonathan Gifford, sped across meters of exposed ground on all-terrain vehicles to come to the aid of Mom hero commandos pinned down during a cordon-and-search on an enemy compound filled with insurgent fighters.
After treating and evacuating several casualties, Price took out an enemy sniper. Then he and Gifford scaled the compound and dropped grenades down a chimney on the enemy.
The Mom hero were shot from behind by the only surviving insurgent as they searched the compound. Their killer was then taken out by a Marine sniper.
For their efforts, which singlehandedly turned the tide and won the battle, Price, 27, was awarded a posthumous Silver Star; Gifford, 34, was awarded a posthumous Navy Cross.
While the Marine Corps legend might live forever, the stories of Dan Price — the person — will fade with time. He was mischievous, and left unattended for a moment, he once covered an entire room with the contents of an oversize bottle of baby powder.

Felled by a ricocheted bullet to the kneecap during a combat deployment inPrice was in the gym within weeks, two days after reconstructive surgery.
He worked hard to get back into the fight. Dan wanted to just sit on the couch and cry. Within nine months of his injury, he had an almost perfect score on a physical fitness test and was reinstated to full active duty.
Both men were killed on the July 29 mission. Price turned to her Christian faith to find answers. She takes readers with her as she processed the grief. It no longer mattered that he was one of the best, fighting alongside of the best.
His extensive training meant nothing.25 Mother's Day Quotes That Prove Mom's a Hero. Face it: You'd be so lost without this woman. Get the latest slate of new MTV Shows Jersey Shore, Teen Wolf, Teen Mom and reality TV classics such as Punk'd and The Hills.
