The White House has announced that the 45th President of the United States of America - Donald J. Trump - will be awarding the Medal of Honor to Master Chief Special Warfare Operator (Sea, Air, and Land) Britt K. Slabinski of the U.S. Navy Seals for his conspicuous gallantry.

The highest honor to be bestowed upon a military veteran comes after Britt Slabinski has spent decades serving America's armed forces with both honor and pride, an attribute that combined with his heroism makes Slabinski an eternal legend to those who served alongside him.

“The Battle of Robert's Ridge” occurred on Afghanistan, after Petty Officer 1st Class Neil Roberts ejected from an MH-47 Chinook helicopter on March 4th of 2002, in which Slabinski led a team, under heavy enemy fire, to rescue the downed SEAL.

"Then-Senior Chief Slabinski boldly rallied his remaining team and organized supporting assets for a daring assault back to the mountain peak in an attempt to rescue their stranded teammate," the White House states in its announcement. "Later, after a second enemy-opposed insertion, then-Senior Chief Slabinski led his six-man joint team up a snow-covered hill, in a frontal assault against two bunkers under withering enemy fire from three directions."

Slabinski "repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire" without hesitation, according to the White House.

The White House press release on Retired Master Chief Special Warfare Operator Britt K. Slabinski says the following:

<blockquote>As a Team Leader assigned to a Joint Task Force, in the early morning hours of 4 March 2002, then-Senior Chief Slabinski led a reconnaissance team to its assigned observation area on a snow-covered, 10,000-foot mountain-top in support of a major coalition offensive against Al-Qaeda forces in the valley below.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fired from enemy fighters hidden and entrenched in the tree lines and rocks riddled the team’s insertion helicopter. One teammate was ejected from the aircraft, and the crippled helicopter crash-landed on the valley floor below.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Then-Senior Chief Slabinski boldly rallied his remaining team and organized supporting assets for a daring assault back to the mountain peak in an attempt to rescue their stranded teammate. Later, after a second enemy-opposed insertion, then-Senior Chief Slabinski led his six-man joint team up a snow-covered hill, in a frontal assault against two bunkers under withering enemy fire from three directions.</blockquote>

<blockquote>He repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire as he engaged in a pitched, close-quarters firefight against the tenacious and more heavily armed enemy forces. Proximity made air support impossible, and after several teammates became casualties, the situation became untenable.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Senior Chief Slabinski maneuvered his team to a more defensible position, directed air strikes in very close proximity to his team’s position, and requested reinforcements. As daylight approached, the accurate enemy mortar fire forced the team further down the sheer mountainside</blockquote>

<blockquote>Carrying a seriously wounded teammate down a sheer cliff face, he led an arduous trek across one kilometer of precipitous terrain, through waist-deep snow while continuing to call fire on the enemy who was engaging the team from the surrounding ridges.</blockquote>

<blockquote>During the subsequent 14 hours, he stabilized casualties on his team and continued the fight against the enemy until the mountaintop was secured by the quick reaction force and his team was extracted</blockquote >

<blockquote^Then-Senior Chief Slabinski enlisted in the U.S. Navy and attended boot camp in Orlando, Florida, in 1988. Upon completion, he received orders to attend Radioman Class “A” School in San Diego, California. Fulfilling a lifelong dream to be a U.S. Navy SEAL, he qualified and graduated in January 1990 with Basic Underwater Demolition / SEAL Class 164.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Slabinski retired after serving as Director of Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Safety Assurance and Analysis Program. He completed 9 overseas deployments and 15 combat deployments in support of the Global War on Terrorism, including Operations ENDURING FREEDOM and IRAQI FREEDOM.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Slabinski has various military and civilian qualifications including NSW Scout Sniper, Military Free Fall Parachute Jump Master, and Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic National Certification. He is a graduate of the U.S. Navy Senior Enlisted Academy and Command Leadership School.</blockquote>

The award ceremony is set to be held in the White House on May 24th, 2018.

Slabinski served in over 400 combat deployments, in support of the Global War on Terrorism, is also a recipient of the Navy Cross.

Outside of that award for valor in combat, Slabinski has received the Navy and Marine Corps Life Saving Medal, five Bronze Stars with Combat Valor distinguishing device, two Combat Action Ribbons, and numerous other commendations.

This will be the honor of his life, as President Trump places the Medal of Honor around the neck of Slabinski in thanks for his dedicated and valiant career service as well as the incidents in which he left no men behind in Afghanistan.

Thank you for your service Master Chief Special Warfare Operator Britt K. Slabinski.

What an honor! The best of our best gets the ultimate commendation from our best president.

Obummer would have probably had a military tribunal looking for war crimes against his buddies that were just peaceful goat farmers.

Master Chief Slabinski is a real hero and true Patriot!!
