that sky-blue ribbon.

For the first time in forty-some years, the Medal of Honor will be awarded to a living recipient who is still in active service.  Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta will receive it for his actions in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley on October 25, 2007.  He will be only the second active member of the Armed Forces with that ribbon on top of his fruit salad, the other one being Colonel Gordon Roberts.

    God bless the young man. Always. And surely God bless the man who is still on active duty who earned his recognition in 1969!

    We are the luckiest, most blessed, and best, country.

    Bravo Zulu, Sergeant Giunta. And welcome to a very exclusive club: living recipients of the Medal of Honor, the highest award for valor that the United States Armed Forces can give.

    BZ Sgt, Giunta, you did good!
