TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. (AP) — A Marine gunnery sergeant who repeatedly braved Taliban fire to rescue and rally his troops in Afghanistan has received the Navy Cross.

The heroic actions of 34-year-old Richard Jibson were recognized during a ceremony Tuesday at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms.

U-T San Diego reports (http://bit.ly/1l285yR ) fellow Marines, dignitaries and family members were on hand as Jibson received the second-highest award a Marine can receive for battlefield bravery.

In May 2012, during a five-hour gunbattle in Afghanistan, Jibson repeatedly put himself in the line of fire to rally his forces and lay down suppressive fire. He charged into a machine gun fusillade to rescue a critically wounded Marine.

Jibson, a married father of two girls, said he was "honored and humbled" to receive the honor.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
