An American Hero: The Uncommon Valor of Clint Romesha to air Thursday at 10 p.m.
In a Jake Tapper Reports documentary, the anchor and chief Washington correspondent will look back at one of the deadliest days of the Afghan war through a compelling interview with former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Clinton Romesha, who led the courageous battle when Combat Outpost Keating was attacked on Oct. 3, 2009. The one-hour special will air Thursday, Feb. 7 at 10 p.m. ET, just days before President Obama will award Romesha the Medal of Honor for his actions that deadly day.
Tapper, who has the first sit-down television interview with Romesha, traveled to Minot, N.D., less than two weeks ago to speak with the him about his uncommon valor and remarkable service to his country. The special also will feature interviews with Sergeant Thomas Rasmussen and former Private First Class Chris Jones who fought alongside Romesha.
