    In the first level of the game "Semper Fi", after you are rescued your objective will be "Secure the Village". Once you pass the first couple of huts killing enemies on the sand you will go up a small ramp to get to a hut, stay behind some of your allies. Once on the deck of this hut a flaming enemy soldier will run out of the double door's and attack one of your soldiers. If you kill this burning enemy before he kills your soldier you will unlock this achievement.

    This is probably one of the first achievements you get for the game (I know it was mine). On "Semper Fi", just a short while after you are rescued to will encounter a soldier being attacked by a enemy soldier on fire. Simply shoot the enemy dead before Ryan is killed.

    In the level "Semper Fi" (The first level of the game), you will start being saved, then they'll ask you to go by a little ramp in the left. After doing that, if on harder difficulties, get on cover and shoot from cover, if on recruit or regular, find the support gunner named ryan (His name should appear like this: Pvt. Ryan - Support Gunner) and stay behind him, close to some barrels. Then, he'll go to the left ramp, follow him from close, look to the right side and you'll see an door. From that door, will run a flaming enemy, kill him before he kills the Pvt. Ryan and the achievement is yours.
    Note: You'd better stab him, it's faster and saves ammo.
