This undated photo released by the U.S. Marines, shows Sgt. Rafael Peralta, 25. Peralta is being considered for a posthumous Medal of Honor, the United States' highest military award. Peralta was shot during a house-to-house search in Fallujah. Lying wounded on the floor of a home, he grabbed a grenade that had been lobbed in by an insurgent. The blast killed him. "If he wouldn't have scooped up the grenade, the other three of us in the room that day would have been killed," said former Cpl. Robert Reynolds, who was in Peralta's squad. (AP Photo/U.S. Marines)
