What You Need To Know:

In this final episode of Season 1, MEDAL OF HONOR returns us to COP Keating and the 2009 battle where Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha (Episode 2) earned his Medal of Honor. Another man was awarded a Medal of Honor for his actions that day, Staff Sergeant Ty Carter. Carter risked his life to save a fellow wounded soldier. He ran out into open fire, performed first aid and carried his brother in arms back to cover. When Carter returned to the United States, he was open about his struggles with Post Traumatic Stress. He was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2013.

The final MEDAL OF HONOR episode of the season is remarkable in several ways. First, it deals frankly with the issue of Post Traumatic Stress, which isn’t discussed in other episodes. Secondly, it returns viewers to the same battle they learned about in Episode 2. The writing and performances in the dramatic sections remain excellent. The episode continues the pattern of a strong moral worldview stressing redemptive self-sacrifice. Sadly, the episode contains many obscenities, including many “f” bombs, warrant extreme caution.
