Col. Gordon R. Roberts, who received the Medal of Honor as a sergeant during the Vietnam War, retired from the Army on Friday at Fort Bragg.
Roberts was the most senior soldier on active duty wearing the nation’s highest military honor, said Maj. Gen. Kenneth S. Dowd, commander of Fort Bragg’s 1st Theater Sustainment Command. Not a one-time hero, Roberts also has two Silver Stars, the third-highest award for valor.
