Some Girls Are Just Crazy

…for a guy in uniform.
UPDATE: Finally, the AP story is out.

A U.S. Marine helicopter pilot who rescued a wounded British soldier in Iraq has received a rare British honor.
Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday presented the Distinguished Flying Cross to Maj. William Chesarek, 32, of Newport, R.I.
…Chesarek was flying a Lynx helicopter for British forces in an exchange program. He braved hostile fire to evacuate a wounded British office in Al Amara province in June.
British Pvt. Michelle Norris, 19, of the Royal Army Medical Corps, received the Military Cross for her action in attending to the wounded officer. She was the first woman to be awarded the Military Cross.

How ’bout that! Big day at the palace all around, I’d say. A heartfelt Bravo Zulu to our major and the brave Pvt. Norris.
