Monica Lin Brown (born 24 May 1988) - Spc. Monica Brown, 19, an Army medic. In April 2007 a vehicle was hit by an IED, her sergeant yelled, "Doc, let's go," and she went. She spotted two injured soldiers, under intense fire dragged them to cover, then received mortar shells and covered the injured with her body and started repairing them through a two hour fight. She saved them both, and received the Silver Star.
Who's hotter: the chunky loudmouth with a TV show or the second US military female to be awarded the Silver Star; Monica Lin Brown, April 2007, Afghanistan, moved 5 wounded soldiers to safety under small arms and mortar fire.
This is Monica Lin Brown from Lake Jackson, Texas. Monica is a United States Army medic who became the first woman during the war in Afghanistan and only the second woman since World War II to receive the Silver Star, the United States' third-highest medal for valor.
