Former Staff Sgt. Clinton L. Romesha on a mission in Afghanistan in 2009. One of his Soldiers credits him with saving the lives of everyone assigned to Combat Outpost Keating on Oct. 3, 2009, after Romesha's actions helped repel a massive enemy assault. He continually exposed himself to enemy fire and his courage, decisiveness and utter calm inspired his Soldiers to keep fighting. Romesha will receive the Medal of Honor in a White House ceremony, Feb. 11, 2013.
