Fort Campbell, KY – The actions of one man in Se San, Cambodia, would remain unknown to everyone but the men he saved that day in 1970, until a fellow Vietnam veteran and 101st Association columnist would stumble across a citation 25 years later in 1999.
That citation, outlining the life saving actions performed by Sgt. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. on May 10th, 1970, would eventually lead to Sabo being posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor April 16th, 2012, by President Barrack Obama.
Three years after being posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, Sabo is honored here on Fort Campbell for his courageous actions.

Fort Campbell, KY – Past and present members of the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) family gathered together here last week for its annual Reunion Week festivities.
This year marked the unit’s 52nd anniversary of its activation, which originally took place September 21st, 1961, at Fort Bragg, NC. Although a time to celebrate, the “reunion” has become much more than just an annual gathering throughout the years.
The 5th SFG (A) has a storied history written by very quiet professionals, but more importantly they are a family that encompasses Veterans, past and present, families and friend of the Legion for generations past.
