This is the story of an American hero - Staff Sgt Clinton Romesha - who is being awarded with the American military's highest honor, the Medal of Honor. On October 3, 2009, at a U.S. military outpost deep in enemy territory in Afghanistan, Romesha led and protected dozens of fellow soldiers during a fierce and deadly attack from hundreds of Taliban fighters. The battle was one of the deadliest for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, and under Romesha's leadership, his team prevailed.
