Gwen, Dessi and Colin Romesha, three of the reasons former Staff Sgt. Clinton L. Romesha decided to leave the Army. After a 12-hour battle when about 300 insurgents attempted to overrun Combat Outpost Keating in Afghanistan, Romesha, whose actions to save the outpost earned him the Medal of Honor, felt as if his luck was running out. He wanted to be fair to his family, so he transitioned to a civilian job in the oil industry.
