Sgt. Jared Monti Awarded Medal of Honor

Yesterday, Sgt. Jared Monti was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for an act of bravery in Afghanistan.  He was killed by Taliban fighters while trying to rescue a wounded comrade under a hail of gunfire.  President Obama presented the medal to Sgt. Monti’s family at a ceremony in the White House.

Sgt. Monti was also known for being an extraordinary person off the battlefield.  Below is a link to his obituary:
