President Barack Obama announced Feb. 21, 2014, that he will award the Medal of Honor to 24 veterans during a March 18, 2014, ceremony at the White House. Sgt. Santiago J. Erevia will be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions near Tam Ky in May 1969. The award, the highest for valor, is an upgrade from the Distinguished Service Cross that many Soldiers received for intrepid actions, personal bravery and devotion to duty during actions against enemy forces.
