On November 16, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta of the 173rd Airborne became the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War. His actions occurred in Afghanistan's Korengal valley during the deployment chronicled in the movie "Restrepo."
"Restrepo" is a movie most every American should see although it's not suitable for small children. It's very real; very graphic.
There are no actors in the film. It is all footage from actual combat by American soldiers in the Korengal Valley.
