Army Master Sgt. Earl Plumlee was one of three recent recipients of the Medal of Honor, the highest military award for valor. Plumlee was recognized for his efforts to repel a suicide attack in Afghanistan in August of 2013. He takes NBC News’ Peter Alexander through the events of that day, and describes how he rushed into danger to help. He was recognized alongside Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Celiz and Sgt. 1st Class Alwyn Cashe, who were honored posthumously. “Our stories are going to be bound together forever, and I hope I can represent them well,” Plumlee says.
