Medal of Honor Recipient Salvator Giunta Opens Up to Wilkow About Battlefield Experiences

BlazeTV

Army Staff Sergeant Salvator Giunta is the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War, and was a special guest on 'Wilkow!' Tuesday.

Giunta served as a rifle team leader during combat operations in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. In an October 2007 attack, Guinta exposed himself to enemy fire to pull a comrade back to cover. When he later noticed two insurgents carrying away another fellow solider, Giunta engaged the enemy, killing one and wounding the other before providing medical aid to the wounded U.S. soldier. Guinta was shot and injured as well during the ordeal.

Salvatore Giunta discussed his experiences on the battlefield, receiving the Medal of Honor from the president, and his new book in an interview with Andrew Wilkow on TheBlaze TV Tuesday. At the interview's end, Giunta presented Wilkow with one of his Challenge coins.
