It was a humbling citation and ceremony. I wrote about this award being vetted and approved back in September. Such an honorable and brave man along with those who serve with him.
The entire ceremony should be posted here after editing on the White House website:
A small snippet from the article:
""Sgt. Giunta told the Pentagon Channel, “I didn’t run on to do anything heroic, I ran on to go fight next to my brother, to go fight next to my friend who I already served one tour in Afghanistan with who we live in the same barracks building for the last four years.”
Sgt. Giunta was nominated for the Medal of Honor, and the President of the United States called him to congratulate him on this award and to invite him to the formal White House ceremony. That ceremony will take place today, November 16, 2010.""
May we keep them all in our hearts and prayers.
