Former Army Staff Sgt. Clint Romesha earned the Medal of Honor in 2009 for his actions in a 12-hour firefight in the town of Kamdesh of Nuristan in Afghanistan. Today, a piece in the Colorado Springs Gazette detailing a recent visit Romesha made to his old post in Fort Carson, Colorado, reveals that Romesha’s medal is wrinkled and tarnished.

The soldier keeps the medal stuffed in his pocket, the story reveals, so it’s always with him, and he can show people that everyone has something inside of them that can lead to something incredible.
