President Trump awards Medal of Honor to Master Sgt. Matthew Williams | USA TODAY



US President Donald Trump awards Medal of Honor to Master Sgt. Matthew Williams, for conspicuous gallantry in Afghanistan in April 2008.

He led a commando element across a river and up a terraced mountain to the besieged lead element of his assault force in the face of rocket-propelled grenade, sniper, and machine gun fire, repeatedly climbing up and down the near-vertical mountainside amid small arms fire to evacuate injured soldiers and repair the team’s satellite radio.
