Today President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta of Iowa. The 25 year old Giunta is the first living recipient since the Vietman War. Here in Oregon, Bob Maxwell, who also is a Medal of Honor recipient from World War II, reflects on the moment he received his medal. He agrees with the statement Sgt. Giunta made that there are scores of military men and women who also deserve the medal.

"I wonder about the three guys that were with me on the command post that evening, that night rather. We were all four in pretty much and equal position. I just happened to be the one that had the grenade event. But there were many soldiers that deserve the medal, that have never gotten the recognition because t their event was neither observed nor written up." Maxwell says when he is called upon the give a speech about his experience, he always remembers to honor all the military men and women who have and are serving. Today’s Medal of Honor Ceremony took place around 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time in Washington D.C. One of the men Giunta saved was Staff Sergeant Joshua Brennan from Ontario, Oregon.  Brennan died three days later from his injuries.
