Yesterday, President Obama presented 24 Medals of Honor to the brave men who sacrificed so much and made unmatched contributions in both the Korean conflict & the Vietnam War. Only 3 of the 24 are still alive. To SFC Melvin Morris, MSG Jose Rodela & SGT Santiago J. Erevia & the other 21 Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice, we say Thank You and know we’re grateful for your contributions to our Country.
