Army Vet Clinton Romesha To Receive Medal Of Honor Today (Video)

Clinton and Tammy Romesha

Today President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to former Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha for his heroic actions during the 13-hour Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan on October 3, 2009.

Romesha is just the fourth living recipient to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan, according to White House news release.

The Department of Defense video put together the video I've posted up top that shows not just what Clint went through on that harrowing day in 2009, but what his wife Tammy endured as well.


The Romeshas and their three children now live in Minot, North Dakota, though the couple grew up in Northern California, according to Wikipedia.

The Pentagon Channel is airing a live webcast of the Medal of Honor ceremony at 1345 ET. You can watch it by clicking here.
