His name is Salvatore Giunta from Iowa he's a 25 year old Staff Sgt. in the U.S. military that will be rewarded the highest honor that can be given to a soldier. The medal of honor.
The medal of honor has not been given to a living recipient since the Vietnam war in 1976. I don't know if you were able to see the interview that 60 minutes did with Staff Sgt. Giunta this past Sunday but you can see it below.
It's worth taking the time to see the segment. I was not only impressed by what he did to win this elite award but his humbleness about it and how he answers the last question in the interview!
I'm thankful for the men and women that serve to protect our country, as a Christian when I see and hear of heroic actions such as this, I remember the heroism of our Lord and Savior Jesus. He came to this world to seek and save those who were lost. Jesus continues to seek these people and He has His own army called the 'church'.
Staff Sgt. Giunta didn't hesitate to seek after a soldier who was being dragged away by the enemy. May we as soldiers of Jesus Christ never hesitate on His mission to save people being dragged by the enemy (the devil) away from Jesus.
Are you a fighting soldier?
