Concurs with the Marine Corps and the Navy that his actions are in the spirit and tradition of the Medal of Honor.

Maintains that eyewitness accounts confirm that Sergeant Peralta deliberately pulled a live grenade into his body in order to save his fellow Marines, and such accounts should be the leading and deciding factor in evaluating his Medal of Honor nomination.
