Trump awards the Medal of Honor to Army Ranger on 9/11 기념일

워싱턴 도널드 트럼프 대통령 awarded the Medal of Honor on Friday to an Army Ranger who led a dramatic hostage rescue in Iraq in 2015.

세레모니, taking place on the 19th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, honored Sergeant Major Thomas Patrick Payne for successfully evacuating dozens of hostages being held by ISIS during a nighttime rescue mission in Kirkuk Province, 이라크, in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
He saved multiple hostages and he was the last man to leave. He wouldn’t leave. No matter what they said, no matter who ordered him to do it, he wouldn’t do it. He was the last one out,” Trump said during the medal ceremony at the White House.
It was one of the largest and most daring rescue missions in American history. Pat and his team rescued 75 captives and killed 20 ISIS terrorists. Pat, you embody the righteous glory of American valor. We stand in awe of your heroic, daring and gallant deeds,” 대통령이 말했다. “You truly went above and beyond the call of duty to earn our nation’s highest military honor.
    Mass graves dug inside the compound had been spotted during surveillance, a US official with direct knowledge of details of the raid 당시 CNN에. The firefight marked the first time US forces stepped into combat against ISIS in Iraq, one US official said in 2015.
    During the ceremony at the White House, among top military brass and administration officials, the President also joked that the severe leg injury Payne endured from a grenade may have beenworth itbecause it led to Payne meeting his future wife.
    While recovering in South Carolina, Pat met with his wife, Alison. Well that probably wasn’t a bad wound then, was that? I hope you’re going to say it was worth it. It was,” 트럼프는 말했다.
    The ceremony comes a week after The Atlantic reported that Trump disparaged US service members killed in battle and chose to skip a ceremony honoring veterans.
      The Atlantic reported that Trump didn’t want to attend a ceremony at the Belleau Wood Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France in 2018 because he was concerned that the rain would dishevel his hair. The President has forcefully denied The Atlantic’s reporting, insisting that the Secret Service had prevented him from attending the ceremony.
      The Medal of Honor is the most prestigious decoration in the US military. Recipients must have demonstratedincontestable proof of the performance of the meritorious conduct, and each recommendation for the award must be considered on the standard of extraordinary merit,” the White House statement said.
