Staff Sgt. Joe Wilson of Crystal Springs, Miss., was one of sixteen who died in a mishap in Iraq.

A Chinook helicopter was shot down earlier this month.

Now, Sgt. Joe Linar says Wilson cradled his head against his own body on the way down, saving Linar's life.

Most of those killed in the crash suffered head trauma.
