The 300th Marine Medal of Honor recipient
Yesterday, President Trump proudly awarded Sergeant Major John Canley the Congressional Medal of Honor. “Fifty years ago, an American Marine fought with unmatched bravery in one of the longest and bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War—the Battle of Hue City,” the President said.
While serving as Company Gunnery Sergeant, Canley led attacks for three days against multiple enemy-fortified positions while exposing himself to enemy fire to carry wounded Marines to safety. On February 6, 1968, at a hospital compound, he twice scaled a wall in full view of the enemy to aid his injured companions.
Sergeant Major Canley saved many American lives as he raced through enemy fire repeatedly, ultimately defeating a large group of communist fighters. “America is the greatest force for peace, justice, and freedom the world has ever known because of you and people like you,” President Trump told Canley at the White House yesterday.
