United States

President Trump has signed the law that will allow Army Sgt. 1st Class Alwyn Cashe to be awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in Iraq in 2005 by waiving the approval requirement of five years following the action. After his Bradley Fighting Vehicle was hit by an IED, Cashe was able to pull himself and the driver out of the vehicle. Despite being covered in fuel, Cashe went back into the burning vehicle numerous times to rescue six soldiers. His former commander Maj. Gen. Gary Brito commented, “You don’t often find truly selfless sacrifice where someone put his soldiers’ welfare before his own.”
