President Obama honors heroism Tuesday with the presentation of the Medal of Honor.

Kyle J. White, a former Army sergeant, is being honored for conspicuous gallantry during combat operations in Afghanistan on Nov. 9, 2007.

White saved another soldier's life and helped with the evacuation of other wounded comrades while under fire during an ambush.

"Sgt. White will be the seventh living recipient to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan," says the White House.

White retired from the Army in 2011, and now works as an investment analyst in Charlotte, N.C.
