For Service As Set Forth: The Story of CMC Britt Slabinski, Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient

In May 2018, President Donald Trump awarded retired Navy Master Chief Britt K. Slabinski the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions while leading a Joint Task Force during Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan. Now Sig Sauer is paying tribute in its own way.


This past National Medal of Honor Day, the gunmaker unveiled a specially-designed commemorative P226 pistol — the same pistol that SEALs carried under the official MK25 designation — to honor Slabinski's receipt of the the nation's highest award for valor.

The commemorative pistol includes ceremonial 24k gold engravings on both sides of the slide: "For Service As Set Forth," the first line of Slabinski's award citation, on the right side, and "No Day Shall Erase You from the Memory of Time, which is featured at the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City, on the left.

The top of the slide features a likeness of the Medal of Honor engraved on a piece of metal recovered from the World Trade Center site, as well as six stars to honor SEAL Team Six.

The grips, custom made from American Black Walnut, feature the Red Unit Medallion on the right and the SEAL Trident on the left.

As if the pistol wasn't enough, Sig Sauer also unveiled a brief documentary recounting Slabinski's years of service. You can watch that above.

The Marine Corps will investigate whether another Marine has ties to a white supremacist group after he allegedly made racist comments on neo Nazi message boards that have since been taken down, according to a Marine Corps official.

Vice News reporters Tess Owen and Tim Hume first reported on Nov. 8 that at least three people who posted on the new defunct Iron March message boards were service members, but their story did not include any of the troops' names.

Newsweek reporters James LaPorta and Asher Stockler were able to independently confirm the identity of one of those service members as an active-duty Marine: Lance Corporal Liam J. Collins, an 0311 Rifleman assigned to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
