**The following was submiited in an e-mail by Sgt Dorsett:
I was with Captain Michaud last year in Djibouti when we were accidentally bombed by an Air Force B-52 with nine Mk117 750 pound bombs. Despite the best efforts of all of us on the hill that day, the medical staff of Camp Lemonier, and the French Medical Team at their triage center, Captain Michaud passed away. He fought for his life for an hour before we were medevac'd off the hill and then for awhile longer on the way to the hospital. He, along with all the other brave service members up there that day are true heroes. Not many know of the incredible deeds done by those Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers but they were absolutely the stuff of legend.
