    Wow, thanks for posting, that's really cool.

    I have no audio at work, I assume this is a posthumous recognition?

    If I am not mistaken I believe the last time that the Medal of Honor was awarded posthumous was for 2 special forces soldiers in Somalia.

    I think a Seal received it in the early days of the Afghan war. Fell from a chopper and charged a couple of positions firing on the choppers. Ended up getting killed.

    I remember the action. Not sure if it was the Medal of Honor or not. Seems to me it was.

    Edit: This isn't the action I was thinking of. But it does cite others who have posthumously have been awarded the MOH
