Spc. Leslie H. Sabo Jr.’s widow and his brother will be at the White House on Wednesday to accept the Medal of Honor, the military’s highest award for bravery, on Sabo’s behalf for his actions on one fateful May day in 1970.
It was May 10, 1970, in Se San, Cambodia. Spc. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. and his platoon were ambushed by a large enemy force. The 22-year-old rifleman from Ellwood City, Pa., charged the enemy position, killing several soldiers, and then attacked an enemy flanking force, drawing fire away from his comrades.
As the enemy retreated, a grenade landed near Sabo and a wounded American soldier. Sabo picked it up and threw it, while shielding his comrade with his own body. The grenade blast badly injured Sabo, but he continued to charge the bunker.
