(WDAY TV) -- A North Dakota man is just hours from taking the national stage and receiving the nation's highest military decoration for valor.

31 year old Clinton Romesha is only the 4th living veteran to receive the Medal of Honor. The ceremony is tomorrow.

He and his wife Tammy moved to Minot when he retired from the Army. The honor comes for his service as section leader during combat operations against an armed enemy in Afghanistan in October, 2009.

U.S. troops were outnumbered six to one.
