Preston and Eli
James McCloughan
Salvatore Giunta
My Opinion
I think James Cloughan was very brave to run "100 meters in an open field through heavy fire to rescue a comrade too injured to move and carried him to safety." He deserves the Medal of Honor because he disobeyed orders to retreat 5 times just so he could rescue injured soldiers.
Medal of Honor
Issued Medal of Honor on November 11, 2010
Recieved Medal of Honor from President Barak Obama
My Opinion
I think that Salvatore's contribution to the US was heroic and should be appreciated more than it is. In war, he risked his life multiple times to save others. He knew he could have died, but he did it anyway. That is very selfless.
