Thank you Hero.
Staff Sgt. Sal Giunta, Medal of Honor Recipient | The Weekly Standard
Just a couple of links that give a bit more than the ceremony:
This ain't Hell, but you can see it from here Blog Archive SSG Sal Giunta’s Day
links to several sites, including an interview on 60 Minutes.
and of course, 'the official site':
Staff Sergeant Salvatore A. Giunta - Medal of Honor Recipient for the United States Army
and very cool video of him on his story:

He is such a great guy, and so humble.
Did you know that the Victoria Cross, the equivalent of the Medal of Honour, is caste using the iron from a cannonball that was fired during the Crimean War (1853-56). They reckon there's only enough left for another eighty medals.
But aside from that - Congratulations to Staff Sgt Giunta.
I saw that guy in interviews. Real class act..and a true hero.
I've been thinking of putting together a Veteran's Day lesson plan, incorporating MOH winners from the beginning of the award. If there's one thing kids can use today it's heroes. They absolutely go nuts for the vets! So much better than when I was a kid.
I enjoyed watching the ceremony. True valor.
Words to him escape me.
