Last Sunday, Logan reported on our country's first non-posthumous Medal of Honor recipient since Vietnam. I previously blogged about Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta, who received our nation's highest military honor for rushing toward his Taliban enemy in order to save a wounded fellow soldier who was being carried away by two Taliban thugs.
The 60 Minutes piece on Giunta does a good job of telling the backstory of the situation leading up to the firefight where Giunta performed his heroic act, and then does an excellent job conveying the heavy burden that a living Medal of Honor recipient must bear.
Please, please watch this segment about Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta.
