salvatore giunta

salvatore giunta

Greatness always come to the fore in the "moment" of a decision and in battle there are many of these moments, as those who are survivors often speak of. Today, November 16th, is a day to be remembered regarding the staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta, the first soldier alive to receive the medal of honor since the Vietnam war.

He tells Lara Logan of 60 Minutes in an emotional interview just what he did to earn the nation's highest combat honor and how the recognition makes him uncomfortable. Some of the content of this may be a difficult reminder of what our troops and their families put on the line daily. We should be reminded daily. The daily reminder will help us all work toward a solution. President Obama pays him tribute today at the White House.

Great that Sgt. Salvatore Giunta is here to tell the tales of his struggles and will all be a helpful benefactor in helping us understand how important soldiers work is.
