    White Belt Medal of Honor

    *LEE, BEN

    Rank and Organization: White Belt First Class, Baltimore Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

    For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:

    White Belt First Class Ben Lee distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with a viado near NAGA Worlds on 11 March 2006. White Belt First Class Lee’s extraordinary heroism and uncommon valor are in keeping with the highest traditions of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu service and reflect great credit upon himself and the White Belt Horde.

    Did he get the match or a DQ? It sounded like the ref was bitching him out . . . or was that just the railbirds?
