The presentation of the Medal of Honor to
the first living recipient since the Vietnam War
was seen all around the world. Sergeant Joshua Balog reports from a special
viewing in Vicenza, Italy. [Balog] President Barack Obama presented the
Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta at the
White House. In Vicenza, Italy, members of Sergeant Giunta’s
unit came together to watch the presentation at Caserma Ederle’s
arena. Emotions ran high as the President of the
United States spoke about one of Vicenza’s own.
I am absolutely convinced that this is what America is all about.
[male speaker] A lot of people buckle under combat pressure.
Sergeant Giunta is one of those guys who doesn’t. I’m just proud to be able to say that I’ve
served with Sergeant Giunta.
