Medal of Honor for SFC Jared Monti, Who Gave His Life in Afghanistan

the Medal of Honor is reserved for special troops who risk their lives above and beyond the call of duty. Sadly, the risk is sometimes overwhelming. Today President Obama presents a Medal of Honor to the parents of a man who risked - and gave - his life while trying to save a comrade. A moment of silence, please, for Sergeant First Class Jared Monti, who gave his life in Afghanistan.
