Trump Awards Medal of Honor to His Own Secret Service Agent

President Donald Trump on Monday awarded the Medal of Honor to formerArmy Staff Sgt. Ronald Shurer II, a Secret Service agent who is now fighting a battle with cancer.

"Today is a truly proud and special day for those of us here in the White House because Ron works right here alongside of us on the Secret Service counter-assault team; these are incredible people," Trump told a crowded room filled with Shurer's family, fellow soldiers and Army senior leaders.

Trump then told the story of Shurer's bravery as a Green Beret on a daring April 6, 2008, mission in the Shok Valley of Afghanistan to "hunt down a deadly terrorist, a leader in that world … [who] was in a remote mountain village."

"Ron was among two dozen Special Forces soldiers and 100 Afghan commandos who dropped off by helicopter into Shok Valley, a rocky barren valley, far away from reinforcements," Trump said.

To all the ones who think they are so brave protesting with a sign, this is what a real hero looks and acts like. Without our service men and women, who serve for our freedoms, you would not be able to carry a protest sign. Thank all our veterans.
