Trump Awards Medal of Honor to Iraq Vet
President Donald Trump has awarded the nation’s highest military honor to an Iraq veteran who cleared an insurgent strong point and allowed members of his platoon to move to safety.
The president presented the Medal of Honor to former Army Staff Sergeant David G. Bellavia of Lyndonville, New York, at a White House ceremony on Tuesday.
Bellavia was leading a squad in support of Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah in November 2004. (AP)
