President Trump presided over his first Medal of Honor ceremony on Monday (July 31st), presenting a 71-year-old Vietnam War veteran with the nation's highest medal for valor in combat. James McCloughan, who was a U.S. Army medic, was awarded the Medal of Honor for running into danger to save wounded soldiers during a 1969 battle despite his own serious wounds. The Pentagon has credited McCloughan with saving the lives of 10 members of his company. Trump said, "I know I speak for every person here when I say that we are in awe of your actions and your bravery."
