In May 2018, President Donald Trump awarded retired Navy Master Chief Britt K. Slabinski the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions while leading a Joint Task Force during Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan. Now Sig Sauer is paying tribute in its own way.


This past National Medal of Honor Day, the gunmaker unveiled a specially-designed commemorative P226 pistol — the same pistol that SEALs carried under the official MK25 designation — to honor Slabinski's receipt of the the nation's highest award for valor.

The commemorative pistol includes ceremonial 24k gold engravings on both sides of the slide: "For Service As Set Forth," the first line of Slabinski's award citation, on the right side, and "No Day Shall Erase You from the Memory of Time, which is featured at the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City, on the left.

The top of the slide features a likeness of the Medal of Honor engraved on a piece of metal recovered from the World Trade Center site, as well as six stars to honor SEAL Team Six.

The grips, custom made from American Black Walnut, feature the Red Unit Medallion on the right and the SEAL Trident on the left.

As if the pistol wasn't enough, Sig Sauer also unveiled a brief documentary recounting Slabinski's years of service. You can watch that above.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif does not believe U.S. President Donald Trump wants war with Iran, but he told Reuters on Wednesday that Trump could be lured into a conflict.

"I don't think he wants war," Zarif said in an interview at the Iranian mission to the United Nations in New York. "But that doesn't exclude him being basically lured into one."

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Zarif's remarks.
