Joe Rodela, front row, center, poses with Cambodian soldiers. The soldier to Rodela's left, as you look at the picture is the 12-year-old Cambodian orphan who was adopted by Rodela's unit. Rodela had planned to adopt the boy and bring him to the U.S. Unfortunately, shortly after the photo was taken, the boy stepped on a mine and was killed. Rodela will receive the Medal of Honor during a March 18, 2014 ceremony at the White House.
