"Medal of Honor recipient and Iowa native Sal Giunta will end his Army career in June and move to Colorado to pursue his education, a military spokesman said yesterday. Giunta, a staff sergeant by rank, has opted not to reenlist and will leave the Army in mid-June, said Army spokesman George Wright. Giunta and his wife, Jenny, plan to move to Fort Collins, Colo., where he will attend school. Wright said he didn’t know what school Giunta will attend, but Fort Collins is home to Colorado State University. Giunta, 26, is the first living service member from the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq to receive the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military honor." (02/09/11)
