(VIDEO) Learn About The Intense Hostage Situation That Earned A Navy SEAL The Medal Of Honor

January 17, 2017

This is an incredible story about Navy SEALs going above and beyond to rescue a American hostage in Afghanistan. What this SEAL team went through to save a fellow American is nothing short of spectacular. Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward Byers Jr. and his team engaged multiple enemies in close combat. Edward described his experience of holding a man against the wall by the throat as the SEAL team tried to locate the American hostage. Eventually, they were able to do so and Edward received a Medal of Honor for his heroism.

Edward’s reaction to being awarded the Medal of Honor is truly amazing. You can see he is humbled to receive this prestigious award on behalf of the Navy as he remembers his fallen brothers.
