  • Vietnam veteran gets Medal of Honor for saving 44 lives

    Nearly five decades after helping rescue dozens American soldiers pinned down by enemy fire during the Vietnam War, Lt. Col. Charles Kettles of Michigan received the Medal of Honor. Kettles led helicopter flights carrying reinforcements to U.S. soldiers and evacuated the wounded after they were ambushed in combat operations near Duc Pho in May 1967. He is credited with helping to save 40 soldiers and four members of his unit. The Veterans History Project campaigned to upgrade Kettles' Distinguished Service Cross to the Medal of Honor, and the Pentagon agreed his actions merited an upgrade. Congress passed legislation waiving a time limitation for the award, paving the way for the honor.
