Navy SEAL Receives Medal of Honor For Rescuing American Hostage

President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Navy SEAL Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward Byers Jr. He is the first living and active duty member of the Navy to receive America's highest military honor in four decades. The 36-year-old was awarded for his service while on a rescue mission to save an American civilian hostage in Afghanistan in 2012. Byers Jr. used his body to shield and protect hostage Dr. Dilip Joseph, as he simultaneously subdued another enemy in the ordeal.
