    Obama awarding Medal of Honor to Army captain

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is awarding the nation's highest military honor to a former Army captain who tackled a suicide bomber while serving in Afghanistan.

    Florent Groberg, 32, is being credited with saving fellow soldier's lives with his actions in August 2012. He was also badly injured in the attack, which killed four people.

    The ceremony takes place Thursday morning at the White House and marks only the 10th time a living service member has received the Medal of Honor for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. Seven more were posthumously awarded the medal.

    Groberg was born in Poissy, France. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2001, the same year he graduated from high school in Maryland. He also competed in track and cross country at the University of Maryland before entering the Army in 2008.

      Poor devil. That's a very negative distinction, kind of like getting one's bar mizvah from the Palestinians.

        While I disagree with your sentiment, that has to be the funniest line of the day.

                Do you see much French Military bashing here? I'd like to think this is a little more sophisticated forum.

                  I thank this hero for his service and his actions on the day he earned the CMoH.

                      He looked like he was biting his tongue as Obama went through the formalities of the award ceremony.

                      Overlooked from the Lame Stream. While he successfully tackled and put to the ground the Terrorist bomber, as he was not allowed to use his weapon to do so, a second bomber rushed in killing four of his team members. He was wounded by the bomb on the scum he had tackled.

                      Like all surviving recipients of the MOH, he would have gladly give it up if he could have his lost comrades back.

                          Three years and around 30(?) surgeries - he paid a high price for his actions. He actually covered the terrorist bomb with his body, according to reports. He also looked very uncomfortable being so close to the anti-military Obama during the ceremony.

                            I don't believe it has something to see with Bobo,rather with the survivor syndrome,imo.

                              Why was he not allowed to sue his weapon? Have you a link for that? Thanks in advance.
