A True Hero

Last night we watched live as SSG Giunta was awarded the Medal of Honor. He is stationed here in Vicenza and my husband has met him. He is as he appears - soft-spoken, and modest. He plans to leave the Army, but his service will never be forgotten! He is a true American hero. Please take a few minutes and watch THIS VIDEO. He tells the story of what happened to his squad and you can't help but be moved by what he has experienced.
Job well done!
Thank you and God bless you!

Just when you think you could not be any prouder of our brave men and women in uniform, you find out....you can.

In the interview I saw with him he said the medal is not for him, he wears it for all that serve. What an amazing guy!

I was moved by the video. Thank God for the men and women who serve and protect our country. I watched SSG Giunta accept the Medal of Honor on TV. Makes us all feel proud of our soldiers.

Thank you for sharing this. He so deserves the honor. I think it's wonderful that he states it's worn for all not just him.

I say a prayer every morning and every night that God brings strength and courage to all the men and women in our Armed Forces as well as their families. Thank you!!!

Hugs,

God bless this true hero. This Ozark Farm Chick is so very thankful for all the men and their families who sacrifice so we have he privilege to live freely.

Ya'll have a marvelously day filled with warm blessing from the very grateful hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!!!

I watched this on the news and wondered if he was near you.

To me, a true hero is one who doesn't think he is and who is so very humbled. He is an amazing man.

I agree with Nick Thomas.

We need to find a better way to get along.

I read about him on Wikepedia. I'm convinced that some of our best countrymen are serving us in the armed forces. God bless them!
