This undated photo provided by the U.S. Army shows Melvin Morris of Cocoa, Fla. More than four decades after Morris was commended for courageous actions while a staff sergeant during combat operations on Sept. 17, 1969, in South Vietnam, President Barack Obama will bestow on the Florida man, now 72, and 23 other veterans the Medal of Honor. The action follows a congressionally mandated review to ensure that eligible recipients were not bypassed due to prejudice. (AP Photo/U.S. Army)
