Former Army Staff Sgt. Clint Romesha was a section leader during the Oct. 3, 2009, attack on Combat Outpost Keating in eastern Afghanistan, one of the deadliest attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan. Eight American soldiers were killed and two dozen others wounded. This harrowing battle was marked by the heroism of many, including Romesha who fought to save his life and those of his fellow soldiers.
On Monday, February 11, President Barack Obama will award Staff Sgt. Clint Romesha the Medal of Honor. In honor of his award, the Army has produced a three-part series highlighting Romesha from the beginning of the battle, his leadership during the fight and finally, his life since leaving the Army.
