Former Staff Sgt. Clinton L. Romesha with his son, Colin. Colin was born after Romesha returned from his 2009 deployment to Afghanistan, where he led the charge to retake Combat Outpost Keating after enemy breached the wire. Those actions will be recognized Feb. 11, 2013, when President Barack Obama presents Romesha with the Medal of Honor. Although he saw eight of his Soldiers die that day, Romesha said he will support his children if they ever want to join the military. It is, after all, a long family tradition.
