This time it the recipient was alive to be honored.
US President Barack Obama has presented the Medal of Honor to a former soldier for his heroism during a huge firefight in Afghanistan. Frormer Staff Sgt Clinton Romesha, 31, led a battle against hundreds of Taliban fighters four years ago. About 50 US soldiers were at Combat Outpost Keating near Pakistan when it was almost overrun by insurgents. He is the fourth serviceman to receive America’s highest military award for action in Iraq or Afghanistan. The father-of-three lives with his family in Minot, North Dakota, and works in oil-field safety.
Congratulaions soldier. Thanks for your service.
