    Adlesperger to get Navy Cross today

    Staff and wire reports
    Friday, April 13, 2007

    The family of Marine Lance Cpl. Christopher S. Adlesperger will accept the Navy Cross on his behalf at a ceremony today in Camp Pendleton, Calif.

    The Albuquerque native was killed in combat in Fallujah, Iraq, in December.

    Adlesperger was given the award - the second-highest that can be conferred on a Marine - for his heroism during a firefight in Fallujah on Nov. 10, 2004.

    Despite sustaining a fragmentation wound from an enemy grenade, Adlesperger "destroyed the last strongpoint in the Jolan District of Al Fallujah, and saved the lives of his fellow Marines," a statement from the Marines said.

    The 2003 Eldorado High School graduate served with Company K, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, 1st Marine Division.
