President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to retired Army Captain Florent Groberg for his heroic actions in Afghanistan. While serving as a personal security commander in his infantry division, Captain Groberg tackled a suicide bomber and saved the lives of his fellow soldiers while also suffering severe injuries of his own in the process. Four other soldiers were killed in the attack. President Obama called his actions the “nature of courage” that confronted fear and danger in a “selfless fashion.” Captain Groberg became the tenth living recipient to be awarded the nation’s highest military honor for actions in Afghanistan. close
