A True Hero, Recognized

For John, BLUFWhat would it cost them to put "President" in front of "Obama"?  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From the Reuters New Service, Reporter Ian Simpson, out of Washington, gives us "Obama to award Medal of Honor to wounded U.S. Army captain" The lede plus one:
A U.S. Army captain who was badly wounded thwarting a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on what he has called the worst day of his life will be awarded the Medal of Honor by President Barack Obama on Thursday.

Retired Captain Florent Groberg, 32, will receive the Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. award for valor, in a White House ceremony. He is the 10th living recipient to be awarded the medal for heroism in Afghanistan.

More on Captain Florent Groberg here.

Note that Captain Groberg is a poster child for immigrants who are great Americans.
