Cpl. Samuel Toloza
He'll stab you in the goddamned face.
El Salvadoran Cpl. Samuel Toloza is a total badass. He was part of a small Central American unit stationed in Najaf, Iraq that came under attack from Iraqi insurgents in May of this year. The small unit was caught off-guard and managed to put up a tough defense before running out of ammunition. With one man dead, twelve others wounded and no bullets left Toloza and his three remaining comerades desperately attempted to hold their position. When Iraqi rebels surrounded one of his wounded friends and tried to pull him off, Toloza freaked out ninja-style, whipped out his goddamned pocket knife and started stabbing the shit out of anyone that came near him. The Iraqis were totally unprepared for some fucking lunatic to start shivving them and were beaten back just as an Allied relief column arrived to secure the area.
You can't question the badassitude of this guy, seen here holding the bloody knife. It takes serious cojones to run at a bunch of gun-toting Iraqis armed only with a 3-inch blade and start stabbing faces. The U.S. was so impressed with how hardcore this dude was that they awarded him the Bronze Star for Bravery and the WCW Hardcore Title.
