Ruben Rivers, MoH

January 21, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
I have been reading about SSGT Ruben Rivers, a warrior from World War II, who, along with six others were the first African Americans to be awarded the Medal of Honor by President Bill Clinton in 1997. I am sorry to have not gotten this link up on MLK day, but want to share this video. SSGT Rivers' citation begins at the 29:40 mark, and his sister accepts his Medal. Watch it here:  C-Span MoH ceremony.
Thank you, SSGT Ruben Rivers.
