Army captain awarded Medal of Honor


PASSAGE OVER A NARROW BRIDGE. AT FIRST, THEY PASSED PEDESTRIANS, A FEW CARS AND BICYCLES, EVEN SOME CHILDREN, BUT THEN THEY BEGAN TO APPROACH THE BRIDGE. AND A PAIR OF MOTORCYCLES SPED TOWARD THEM FROM THE OTHER SIDE. THE AFGHAN TROOPS SHOUTED AT THE BIKERS TO STOP, AND THEY DID, DITCHING THEIR BIKES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BRIDGE AND RUNNING AWAY. AND THAT’S WHEN FLO NOTICED SOMETHING TO HIS LEFT. A MAN DRESSED IN DARK CLOTHING WALKING BACKWARDS JUST SOME TEN FEET AWAY. THE MAN SPUN AROUND AND TURNED TOWARD THEM. AND THAT’S WHEN FLO SPRINTED TOWARD HIM. HE PUSHED HIM AWAY FROM THE FORMATION AND AS HE DID, HE NOTICED AN OBJECT UNDER THE MAN’S CLOTHING, A BOMB. THE MOTORCYCLES HAD BEEN A DIVERSION. AND AT THAT MOMENT, FLO DID SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY. HE GRABBED THE BOMBER BY HIS VEST AND KEPT PUSHING HIM AWAY. AND ALL THOSE YEARS OF TRAINING, ON THE TRACK, IN THE CLASSROOM, OUT IN THE FIELD, ALL OF IT CAME TOGETHER IN THOSE FEW SECONDS. HE HAD THE INSTINCTS AND THE COURAGE TO DO WHAT WAS NEEDED. ONE OF FLO AS COMRADES, SERGEANT ANDREW MAHONEY, HAD JOINED IN, TOO. TOGETHER THEY SHOVED THE BOMBER AGAIN AND AGAIN AND THEY PUSHED HIM SO HARD, HE FELL TO THE GROUND ONTO HIS CHEST AND THEN THE BOMB DETONATED. BALL BEARINGS, DEBRIS, DUST EXPLODED EVERYWHERE. FLO WAS THROWN SOME 15 OR 20 FEET AND WAS KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS. MOMENTS LATER HE WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD IN SHOCK. HIS EARDRUM WAS BLOWN OUT, HIS LEG WAS BROKEN AND BLEEDING BADLY. STILL, HE REALIZED THAT IF THE ENEMY LAUNCHED A SECONDARY ATTACK, HE’D BE A SITTING DUCK. WHEN A COMRADE FOUND HIM IN THE SMOKE, FLO HAD HIS PISTOL OUT, DRAGGING HIS WOUNDED BODY FROM THE >>>TODAY WE HONOR FLO BECAUSE HIS ACTIONS PREVENTED AN EVEN GREATER CATASTROPHE. YOU SEE, BY PUSHING THE BOMBER AWAY FROM THE FORMATION, THE EXPLOSION OCCURRED FARTHER FROM OUR FORCES AND ON THE GROUND INSTEAD OF IN THE OPEN AIR. WHILE FLO DIDN’T KNOW IT AT THE TIME, THAT EXPLOSION ALSO CAUSED A SECOND UNSEEN BOMB TO DETONATE BEFORE IT WAS IN PLACE. HAD BOTH BOMBS GONE OFF AS PLANNED, WHO KNOWS HOW MANY COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED. BRIGADE DIVISION AND THE UNITED STATES ARMY. [ APPLAUSE ]

  1. mr. president love or hate you i respect you going through this bs, hopefully idiots on the internet will commit action instead of criticism behind their computers

  2. Good for him but none of them should have been there to begin with. However he did save many lifes and for that he was a hero.

  3. how bizarre it must be to get the Congressional Medal of Honor the highest medal you can receive for bravery and courage being given by one of the biggest coward in history

  4. Medal of Honor is an inverted pentagram. It's no coincidence! The Satanists in charge of this country are LAUGHING their asses off while their good little lapdogs receive these dog awards. They are openly MOCKING you, soldiers (soul-diers).

  5. For Mr.obama he probably give no fucks about God during this , but I do know this soldier deffinently believed in lord and God and that's what saved him for saving the others God bless
