Last month, an ISIS suicide bomber tried to walk inside a packed Shi'ite mosque in Dammam, eastern Saudi Arabia. Because threats have been made in the past, volunteers stand guard outside to keep those inside safe. These four brave men were standing guard that day.

When they saw him coming, they didn't run or hesitate. Instead they jumped on him and covered him with their own bodies, absorbing most of the blast. Instead of hundreds dying, only two other lives were lost that day.

One was Abdul al-Arbash, a 22 year-old Wichita State University student studying electrical engineering. He was home for the summer to get married.

Thousands attended their funeral.
