We have had several posts about SFC Paul Smith in the past. The White House announced today that President George W. Bush will honor Sgt. 1st Class Paul R. Smith on the second anniversary of his courageous actions during the Battle of Baghdad Airport. The Medal of Honor will be presented to the Smith family during a White House ceremony, April 4. Link.
Smith is the first to receive the military’s highest award for actions taken in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.The army has an excellent site with all the information here.
You can also find an outstanding multimedia website by the St. Petersburg Times here. It is worth the visit.
