The Story Of Medal Of Honor Recipient Sal Giunta

Incredible story, I can’t even imagine how scary that would have been…

What a humble guy Sal Giunta is.  Couldn’t ask for a nicer guy to receive the honor,  I’m not surprised at his reaction to receiving the medal considering the friends he lost.

I can hardly wait to see the movie Restrepo … It comes out on November 29.

Check out his interview in Vanity Fair – HERE

Did the CO really risk the lives of men for pieces of equipment? A lousy M14 and a Ruck Sack…Wow, what a waste.

They were on the hunt for baddies in the valley. If getting some gear (and payback) was in the cards while in the conduct of their mission, all the better.
