President Barack Obama and former Army Sergeant Kyle J. White bow their herds for prayer before Obama awarded White with the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry while serving Afghanistan, during a ceremony in the East Room at the White House in Washington, D.C. on May 13, 2014. Sergeant White saved a fellow soldier's life and helped secure the evacuation of several other wounded Americans while under persistent fire during a 2007 ambush in Afghanistan.
