Medal of Honor Ceremony for Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha - Psalm 23

Yesterday I watched the Medal of Honor ceremony for Clinton L. Romesha, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army.
I rarely watch TV yet I was blessed to see this historic event. Staff Sergeant Romesha was awarded
the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry in Afghanistan.
His acts of valor and bravery in the battle at Combat Outpost Keating on Oct 3, 2009 were remarkable.
The camp was attacked by the Taliban and the odds of a positive outcome have been described as impossible. The reading of the Medal of Honor Citation (shown in the video below) describes the battle and the heroic acts in detail. Staff Sgt. Romesha is a hero, a patriot and a man of honor.
