Jared Monti, Medal of Honor

“Duty, honor, country, service, sacrifice, heroism,” the president said during his first Medal of Honor ceremony. “Jared Monti knew. The Monti family knows.”

President Barack H. Obama, 17 September 2009.

Monti’s platoon — part of the 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment — was on an intelligence-gathering patrol when it was ambushed by more than 60 insurgents in Afghanistan’s Nuristan province. After calling in artillery support and directing his men’s return fire, Monti braved withering enemy fire to try to pull the comrade to safety from an exposed position. Monti, who was 31, was mortally wounded on the third attempt. source
