Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort 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.

Maj. Gen. Gary J. Volesky, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, assists George H. Sabo, brother of Sgt. Leslie H. Sabo Jr., unveil the plaque that will hang in the new Sabo Physical Fitness Center on Fort Campbell during the dedication ceremony Sept. 9, 2015. Sabo served with 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st, during the Vietnam War. While he was killed in action in May 1970, his actions and memory are honored through his receiving the Medal of Honor in 2012 and this building dedication. (Sgt.
