* On November 28, 2016, a student at Ohio State University, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, went on a rampage supposedly because of perceived injustice against Muslums. Only eleven people were injured due to the quick actions of Alan Horujko, an Ohio State officer and graduate of that same school, who struck him down within a minute of his rampage starting.

* The flight crew of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Airlines_Flight_232 United Airlines Flight 232]] had their SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome when their [=DC-10's=] center engine ''exploded'', [[OhCrap taking out all three redundant hydraulic systems with it]]. With the aid of Dennis Fitch, a [=DC-10=] flight instructor who happened to be aboard, Captain Alfred Haynes limped the stricken plane to Sioux City, all the while keeping his cool and making some rich BlackComedy with air traffic control. Sadly, the inevitable crash meant only 184 of the 296 people aboard survived.

* Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth, before entering politics, served in the Army in Iraq and was severely wounded, was in losing both legs and severely damaging an arm. Watch her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB6bBrX052I confront a man who claims disabled veteran benefits because he twisted his ankle playing football in a military prep school.]] She explains what a service related disability really is. The only way she could have done it better was to conclude with, "the witness claims 30% disability. Bailiff, arrange that." (Incidentally, the witness later went on to [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/true-crime/wp/2016/06/20/ashburn-ceo-braulio-castillo-convicted-of-murder-in-estranged-wifes-2014-death/ murder his wife.]]

** Whatever you may think of his tenure as Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld got one on 9/11. The Pentagon had just been hit, and first responders had not yet arrived. Seeing the situation, Rumsfeld himself organized some of the Pentagon employees and led them into the burning building to rescue those still in danger.
