Tonight at 9:00pm central time CNN will air an interview filmed in Minot, ND, between Jake Tapper and soon-to-be Medal of Honor winner U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Clinton Romesha. Romesha led a battle at Combat Outpost Keating in October 2009.

He’s currently in North Dakota working in the oil patch.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview which has an emotional Romesha describing what it was like to be out of ammunition and facing 400 Taliban fighters who owned the high ground. Asked what you can do in a situation like that, Romesha responds, “you can always try.”
