Questions surround awarding of Silver Star
- When Pfc. Johnathon Millican, 20, died in January in Karbala, Iraq, three of his fellow soldiers believed he had thrown himself on a grenade and saved their lives and that of a fourth soldier.But Sgt. 1st Class Sean Bennett, whose eyewitness account led the Army to award Millican the Silver Star, one of its highest honors, subsequently said his initial report may have been inaccurate. Col. Al Kelly, who looked into the incident as part of a standard investigation, said autopsy results showed that Millican was killed by gunfire and more likely fell dead near the grenade.
