Saw his story the other day, can't remember what it was on, I think 60 minutes. He is very humble and cried that he didn't want this award when some of the guys didn't make it.

This is from the same folks that made "Restrepo" (See you tube..). A really good documentary about the Korengal Valley where this took place. This is the filmakers tribute to him...unedited.

Great story, thanks for posting. A well deserved honor, and as befitting a true hero, the accolades couldn't be less important to him personally.

Yeah his reasoning was that he didn't think he did anything that anyone else in his platoon wouldn't had done. Very humble indeed
