    "We helped him up so he could get to the corpsman to get bandaged up," McKenzie, 22-year-old from Bonaqua, Tenn. "We made sure to kill the guys who shot him."
    The corpsman treated Conde, who only wanted to get his gear and get back to the fight.
    Conde's Marines were out there and he knew his place was alongside them.

    "We stayed and fought until every one of the insurgents was dead," Conde said...

    Over the next few days, Conde's unit participated in several other firefights until the violence died down. All the while, he nursed his wound, not giving into the pain and refusing to leave his Marines.

    Only when his arm went numb, making it difficult to hold his rifle steady, did he finally give in and step out of the fight.

    Back at the camp here, Marines asked Conde why he chose to stay and fight even after being shot.

    "I told them that I couldn't just leave the fight when I still could keep going," he told them.

    But it his actions didn't surprise his fellow Marines.

    "He always told us that he would lead us from the front, and that we would never do anything if he wasn't doing it too," Cox explained. "After being in that firefight with him, I will always know that he is true to his word."
