Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates poses for a group photo with Medal of Honor recipient Army Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta and his team members from Company B, 2nd Battalion, Airborne, 503rd Infantry Regiment, just prior to Giunta's induction ceremony into the Hall of Heroes at the Pentagon, Nov. 17, 2010.
Giunta, the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War, received the nation's highest honor for his actions of valor during an enemy attack in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan, Oct. 2007 where he risked his life to save the lives of his fellow soldiers.
