Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha Speaks
Clinton L. Romesha is a former U.S. Army staff sergeant who received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions on Oct. 3, 2009, during a deadly attack on Combat Outpost Keating in Afghanistan.
He is one of only 18 to receive our highest award for valor for heroism displayed while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, according to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
The event is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Corps of Cadets Rice Center for Leader Development as part of the Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series.
Cadets will have assigned seating in the front half of the auditorium. Public seating is available behind them.
During his motivational talks, Romesha reminds audiences of the power ordinary people have for extraordinary bravery and remains deeply committed to telling the stories of the soldiers who served with him, both living and gone.
Copies of his 2016 memoir, Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor, will be available for purchase at the event through the University Bookstores. There will not be a book-signing event.
