Today, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta receives the Medal of the Honor. It is the first award to a living recipient since the Vietnam War.
I saw Staff Sgt. Giunta’s story on 60 Minutes. He seems a very humble, dedicated soldier. He doesn’t recognize his own act of heroism but is quick to acknowledge that all his brothers and sisters in the war zone perform similar tasks everyday.
Congratulations, Staff Sergeant Giunta. You preserve the honor of our troops.
