Medal of Honor Recipient to Skip SOTU

Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesh, only the fourth living person to be awarded the Medal of Honor, has chosen not to romeshapoliticize his life and actions. Instead of attending the State of the Union address as Mrs. Obama’s guest he will stay home and visit with friends.

“I’ve done some soul searching,” he said. “As much as a great honor it would be to be a guest of the first lady, it’s also kind of hard to break away from the friends and the family and all the great guys here” from Black Knight Troop, who have come to Washington for the Medal of Honor events. “I just need to spend a little more time with them.”

Prioritizing loved ones over politics.

  2. Or maybe he doesn’t really want to be associated with the Obamas?
