Captain McKenna and his unit were on foot patrolling the streets of fallujah, Iraq, when his unit came under coordinated sniper attack. Lance Corporal Michael Glover, who was the point man for the patrol, was struck by a sniper’s bullet and lay wounded on the ground. Capt McKenna immediately called for his men to throw smoke grenades around Cpl. Glover. Captain McKenna ordered his men to maintain the position of cover and went into the cloud of smoke to aid Cpl. Glover. As Captain McKenna was dragging Cpl. Glover to safety, he was hit by sniper fire.

John received the Silver Star for “Ignoring the imminent peril from heavy incoming fire, Captain McKenna ran into the intersection in an effort to save his downed Marine. completely exposed to enemy fire, he calmly knelt next to the stricken Marine to assess his condition. As he began to drag the Marine to a covered position, Captain McKenna was hit by enemy fire and was mortally wounded.”
