At the White House, former Army Sgt. Kyle White was awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest honor for valor. President Obama recalled White’s bravery in a 2007 incident in Afghanistan when his platoon came under surprise attack. White sprinted through enemy fire to take care of a teammate with a shattered arm, and ensured his safe lift out by helicopter.
