Fallen U.S. Soldier Awarded Medal of Honor

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama honored an Army Green Beret killed in Afghanistan with the nation's highest honor on Wednesday -- the eve of the war's ninth anniversary.

Staff Sgt. Robert Miller was killed in an ambush during a night patrol in Jan. 2008. Obama awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor to his parents for his service.

"You gave your oldest son to America. America is forever in your debt," Obama said as he handed them the award.

Despite two chest wounds that eventually led to his death, Miller saved 22 fellow soldiers.

He is the third U.S. service member to receive the award since the Afghan war began.
