A brave Army captain who survived attacks by two suicide bombers moments apart but was badly wounded as he saved his fellow soldiers in Afghanistan will receive the Medal of Honor, the White House announced Thursday.
President Barack Obama will award (Ret.) Army Capt. Florent Groberg the honor on Nov. 12 for what the White House called “his selfless service” during a deadly attack in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, in August 2012.
Groberg and five other soldiers were providing a security detail for senior U.S. military leaders as they were heading down a street toward the provincial governor’s compound when an ambush started to unfold, according to a story about the incident on the U.S. Army’s official homepage.
