Trump presents highest military honor to Green BeretPresident Donald Trump presented the nation’s highest military honor on Wednesday to a Green Beret who helped save four critically wounded comrades and prevented the lead element of a special operations force from being overrun in Afghanistan. The Medal of Honor was presented to Master Sgt. Matthew O. Williams of Texas, who still serves in the Army. The events leading to the honor occurred in April 2008 during a mountainside firefight that lasted several hours as Williams’ team and about 100 Afghan commandos were attacked by insurgents waiting above them.
