While on a patrol in Husaybah, his unit was attacked and he deliberately covered an enemy grenade to save nearby Marines. When it exploded Dunham was seriously injured and died eight days later. Dunham is the first Marine to receive the Medal of Honor for actions in the War on Terror, and the first Marine to receive the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War. FYI:
