This Day the History of the War Against Muslim Extremists

On this day in 1993, dozens of cheering, dancing Somalis dragged the body of an American soldier through the streets of Mogadishu. The soldier, an M-14 sniper, Master Sergeant Gary Gordon, had left the safety of the orbiting Blackhawk helicopter to help successfully rescue downed pilot Michael Durant, knowing that, with his limited ammunition, he would very probably be killed. He received the Medal of Honor posthumously. I can't find out if his body was ever recovered.
