On May 21st, 1951, Private 1st Class Joseph Rodriguez’ company was dispatched near a tiny village in Korea. A small, but strategically vital peak was in the balance. Despite the previous company’s casualties, Rodriguez’ men continued forward. Because of Joseph’s heroic actions, the mission was completed and he received the Congressional Medal of Honor. The Moments of Valor series was produced in partnership with the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation.
