Army Captain Receives Medal of Honor

One of our country's veterans is receiving the highest military honor - the Medal of Honor.

President Obama presented retired Army Captain Florent Groberg the honor for his courageous actions in Afghanistan in 2012. The 32-year-old Maryland man was recognized for his service to our country, including his quick thinking and willingness to put himself in harm's way in order to protect his fellow soldiers.

After being badly injured, Groberg spent three years recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. He is the 10th living recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in Afghanistan.
