A MOH for SGT Clinton L. Romesha

In the Outpost, Jake Tapper covered the heroism behind the COP Keating attack. And now, SGT Clinton L. Romesha will receive the Medal of Honor for his brave efforts:

A former staff sergeant who helped repel one of the largest, most vicious battles against U.S. forces in Afghanistan will receive the Medal of Honor, the White House announced Friday.

Clinton L. Romesha, 31, will be the fourth living service member to receive the nation’s highest award for valor for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. Seven other service members have posthumously been awarded the Medal of Honor for their actions in those wars.

Romesha will be awarded Feb. 11 at the White House.
