A salute to Sgt. Sarun Sar, awarded the Silver Star

How's this for an American success story?

Sarun Sar was born in Cambodia, survived the killing fields (although most of his family didn't), came to America thanks to a church sponsorship, joined the military a year after graduating from high school, became an American citizen, joined Special Forces, married a Polish lady, and has earned the Silver Star for valor in combat in Afghanistan. And what he wants to emphasize is the humanitarian work he and his men have been doing in Afghanistan.

Ralph Kinney Bennett has the story. (OpinionJournal, May 10, 2006)
