This is what I found on

President Trump on Thursday honored a late Vietnam War veteran and hero of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.

The president awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal to Rick Rescorla, who died while leading evacuation efforts in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

“This evening, we come together to pay tribute to a fallen hero who devoted his life to defending freedom and who made the supreme sacrifice to ave others on Sept. 11, 2001,” Trump said.
