When troops receive the Medal of Honor for acts of valor, they usually credit their fellow service members.
Former Army Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta took that sentiment one step further last week when he offered his Medal of Honor to the brigade he served with, according to CNN.
Giunta received the Medal of Honor in 2010 for his actions in October 2007 when he was a team leader with Company B, 2nd Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team.
Then a specialist, Giunta was conducting a patrol with his team in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan when they were ambushed by the enemy, according to his citation for the medal.
