“These days Clint works in the oil fields in North Dakota,” Obama said. Romesha works for KS Industries, an oil-field construction company based in Tioga.
A former U.S. Army staff sergeant now living in Minot was presented the nation’s highest military honor by President Obama Monday in a White House ceremony.
The president placed the Medal of Honor attached to a blue ribbon around Clint Romesha’s neck. Romesha’s wife, Tammy, and their children, Dessi, Gwen and Colin, watched nearby.
