Trump Awards Medal Of Honor To Vietnam War Medic


President Trump on Monday awarded the Medal of Honor to a retired U.S. Army captain who saved dozens of lives during the Vietnam War.

Gary Michael Rose is believed to have aided and saved around 60 to 70 men who were participating in the 1970 Operation Tailwind, a “harrowing” four day mission that aimed to prevent the North Vietnamese from transporting weapons through the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

“For many years the story of Mike’s heroism had gone untold. Today we gather to tell the world of his valor and proudly present him with our nation’s highest military honor,” Trump said at the White House ceremony, adding that the award will forever “enshrine him into the history of our nation.” Read more at The Hill.
