Medal of Honor ceremony compliments the bravery of modern troops

I was awestruck with the events as they unfolded last night when I received an email notification Osama Bin Laden was dead. A combined force of US elite military including Seal Team 6 surgically raided Bin Laden's hideaway and killed him in direct fire action after giving him one last chance to surrender.
Below is the story of the Presidential ceremony held today, 5/2/11 to award two posthumous Medal of Honor awards for US servicemen killed-in-action in Korea 1951/1952. Everyone should read the full story of this modern day Service and Sacrifice as well as two wonderful examples from the Korean War. God Bless our military of today and for those who served in history!... God Bless their Families!... and God Bless America!

— When President Obama expressed his pride Monday in America's men and women in uniform, he wasn't just speaking about those who hours earlier had killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, but about those who six decades ago had given their lives in the Korean War.

During a somber ceremony Monday in the White House, Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor posthumously on two Army privates — Anthony T. Kaho'ohanohano of Pukalani, Hawaii, and Henry Svehla of Belleville, N.J.

"Today we remember them with the highest military decoration that our nation can bestow," Obama said, describing the pair as "hometown kids who stood tall in America's uniform."
