Romesha Speaks Locally

Posted: Updated:

It's been a whirlwind of activity for Medal of Honor recipient Clint Romesha.

Romesha encouraged community and base leaders to recognize 'everyday heroes' in a presentation today at the Military Affairs Committee meeting.

Romesha received the Medal of Honor in February.

He says that while meeting President Obama was an honor, the highlight of his trip was reconnecting with platoon mates and sharing the moment with the families of the eight lost soldiers in his platoon.

Romesha is getting involved with the Medal of Honor society 'character development program.'

In the future, he hopes to work with companies --- encouraging employers to recognize the value of veteran skill sets.

(Clint Romesha, Medal of Honor Recipient) "The real enjoyments are connecting with soldiers and getting the message out there that, I'm just a small town boy. Heroes are everywhere in the U.S. There are so many heroes throughout the country and everybody has the potential for greatness."

The Military Affairs Committee aims to strengthen the relationship between Minot and the Minot Air Force Base.

The community and base leaders meet the first Thursday of every month.
