During A Training Exercize In Maryland Last Year, This Sailor Did Something SELFLESS…He Didn’t Let His Brother Die Alone

August 05, 2014

Petty Officer 2nd Class Ryan Harris, 23, was on a training dive with fellow sailor Petty Officer 1st Class James Reyher, 28.

What happened underwater was horrifying, with their gear failing and Harris resisting self-preservation instincts to give his last breath to attempt to save Reyher.

Harris will posthumously receive the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his actions.
