Former Staff Sgt. Clinton L. Romesha, pictured here in Afghanistan in 2009, said being a scout was "right up his alley." He enjoyed being light and fast and observing, unseen. On Oct. 3, 2009, Romesha led the U.S. effort to retake Combat Outpost Keating after about 300 enemy fighters surrounded and partially breached the small, isolated outpost, actions for which he will be awarded the Medal of Honor.
