Navy SEAL Edward Byers sits down for an interview after receiving his Medal of Honor. He said he was extremely grateful to have all the meaningful people in his life fill the room during his ceremony. Byers also reflects on the countless times his Navy SEAL teammates have heroically saved each other’s lives, and believes that his medal is a direct representation of those actions. He also discusses his life post-ceremony, meeting the other Medal of Honor recipients, and how his life has changed since receiving the Medal of Honor. Finally, he says he wants to get back to what he loves best: being a Navy SEAL.
