Bruce Jenner was named as the ‘Woman of the Year’ by Glamour Magazine. Well, this female Marine’s family is speaking out and putting ‘Caitlyn’ on blast…and it’s epic. Check it out…
Her name is Rebecca Turpin, and she is a First Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. She’s not speaking up for herself because of her humility, but she is the epitome of bravery. Because of her actions in a fire fight she was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with a Combat “V” [valor] device.
The convoy of 18 vehicles departed around 4 a.m. for a mission expected to take only a day. They wouldn’t finish until more than two days later. After hitting multiple improvised explosive devices, Turpin would keep their mission going by managing the vehicle losses and keeping her men alive.
When Turpin’s convoy came under heavy fire in a small village as they proceeded with their objective, she called in a pair of Cobra helicopters directing the air support to protect the convoy; eliminating or dispersing the threats. As things quieted down, the convoy began to leave the village, but the insurgents reappeared and began firing again. Turpin, while directing the machine gunners and Cobras, skillfully escaped with her convoy and completed the mission.
Simply amazing. In a crisis you revert to the level of your training, and she obviously received expert training. Rebecca was able to maintain focus and cast out any semblance of fear that would try and invade her mind during these two grueling days.
