Congressman Duncan Hunter, Republican from California, has sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis asking him to upgrade a Silver Star award to a Navy Cross for Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion in light of what he called "new material evidence."
It’s been nine years since my only brother, Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, was killed during a combat operation in Iraq. The day that our family received that knock on the door, our lives were forever changed. Would we let this tragic event define us? Who would we become without Travis?
