From the Task and Purpose website

In May 1969, Specialist James McCloughan survived a 48-hour massacre — and never stopped fighting to save 10 members of his unit.

It’s been nearly 50 years since McCloughan, an Army medic who served with Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment during the Vietnam War, and President Donald Trump on July 31 presented him with the military’s most prestigious award: The Medal of Honor.

Combat medic James McCloughan received the Medal of Honor for his actions in Vietnam in 1969.
