Vietnam vet gets Medal of HonorIn a White House ceremony Monday, President Donald Trump will award the Medal of Honor to a Vietnam veteran who helped more than 60 wounded soldiers -- recognition delayed decades by the classified nature of his mission in Laos.

Retired U.S. Army Capt. Gary M. Rose was a medic assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group Airborne, one of the most decorated Army Special Forces groups in history. He risked his life, while wounded himself, to deliver medical care to injured soldiers Sept. 11-14, 1970.
