A Vietnam veteran was awarded the Medal of Honor by the President, more than 40 years after his acts of bravery.

Army Command Sergeant Major Bennie G. Adkins, now 80, fought enemy soldiers in close combat, dodging mortar rounds as he dragged wounded allies to safety and even refused to be evacuated, despite having wounds of his own.
