The medal is given to soldiers for heroism outside the battlefield. Sergeant Perkins came to the aid of a group of Canadian tourists in July, when their tour bus collided with a semi trailer on the Thruway in Waterloo, New York, between Syracuse and Rochester. WRVO's Joanna Richards was at the ceremony at Fort Drum and has this report.</p> Wed, 14 Dec 2011 12:14:51 +0000 Joanna Richards 11054 at http://wrvo.org
