Check out Monday night's edition of ABC's Nightline at 11:30 p.m., and you might catch a glimpse of Army Pvt. 1st Class Marc Solowski, 21, who was born in Largo and graduated from East Lake High School.
Solowski, the son of Lynn Solowski of Palm Harbor, is a gunner with the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan.
Solowski, who is serving a 15-month deployment, has been nominated for a medal for securing a hilltop, organizing and leading a counterattack while under fire and preventing the body of a fellow soldier from falling into enemy hands on Oct. 23. The show will focus on what his unit has been through in the last month.
