We heard the news earlier this week that a Bozeman, Montana native will receive the nation's highest military honor. Staff Sergeant Travis Atkins will posthumously receive the Medal of Honor later this month at the White House.

Staff Sergeant Atkins still has family here in Montana. They were featured in this incredible video produced by the US Army.

Watch his family describe the heroic actions, and his impact, at the video below: (h/t The Association of the US Army at ausa.org)
