Cashe retrieved six Soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter from the burning vehicle, receiving burns on nearly 72% of his body. He died less than a month later. Recently, he was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his heroic acts of valor - the first Black veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to earn the decoration.
