Running out of ammo, badly wounded Army Specialist Leslie Sabo, Jr. died suppressing enemy fire, allowing a Med-Evac helicopter to lift off from a landing zone in Cambodia.

Les Sabo was 22-years-old. It was Mother’s Day, 1970.

“I wanted to remember him the way he was before he died, but it was bad,” his widow Rose Sabo Brown remembers.

Forty-two years later, Rose, will receive the Medal of Honor for her husband’s bravery. It comes with an invitation to the White House on May 16th.
