How a SEAL earned a Medal of Honor saving another SEAL with a Medal of Honor

Stavros Atlamazoglou | July 12, 2021

Receiving the Medal of Honor is an exceptional and rare honor that very few Americans have earned. Most Medals of Honor are posthumous, reflecting the near-impossible odds one has to surmount to earn the nation’s highest award for bravery under fire.

Usually, living recipients of the Medal are so incapacitated from their wounds that they retire. Those who are still able-bodied, are pulled off operational duties and are given more administrative and public affairs tasks.

Medals of Honor are rare. But what is even rarer is to have one Medal of Honor recipient save the life of another. There have only been three instances of this happening in history, and one of them took place during a clandestine operation deep behind enemy lines in Vietnam.
