William Swenson was presented the Medal of Honor in 2013 for his actions in 2009 in Afghanistan. The Medal of Honor is the U.S.'s highest award for valor in combat. This video was filmed by an Army medic helicopter crew who responded to Swenson's calls for medical evacuation during Swenson's Medal of Honor battlefield actions. In it, you can see Swenson helping evacuate the wounded to the helicopter.
