Harlem Hellfighter (finally) gets his Medal of Honor

Monday, May 18th, 2015

After almost 100 years, war hero Henry Johnson is about to receive the Medal of Honor.

During World War I he saved a buddy from being captured while single-handedly fighting off an entire German raiding party! The French pinned a medal on him immediately while the Americans wouldn’t even recognize his heroism until 2002. If he’d been white, he’d be as famous as Sergeant York or Audie Murphy. Now, finally, Henry Johnson gets the respect and gratitude he deserves.
