Four Army troops received the nation’s highest military accolade on Tuesday from US President Joe Biden in recognition of their bravery during the Vietnam War that went above and beyond the call of duty.

Staff Sgt. Edward N. Kaneshiro, Specialists Five Dwight W. Birdwell, Dennis M. Fujii, and retired Maj John J. Duffy are receiving the Medal of Honor from President Joe Biden. Biden lauded their bravery when speaking in the East Room of the White House, lamenting that they hadn’t personally received due honor.

“Not every service member has received the full recognition they deserve,” Biden said.

“Today, we’re setting the record straight. We’re upgrading the awards of four soldiers who performed acts of incredible heroism during the Vietnam conflict.”
