Medal of Honor for Travis Atkins
Posted on: 04/26/19

Trevor Atkins was 11 when his father, Army Staff Sgt. Travis Atkins, was killed while serving in Iraq a dozen years ago. On Wednesday President Trump will present the Medal of Honor to the Atkins family to recognize Travis for his heroism in saving fellow soldiers while losing his own life.

“My true treasure is what people say about him,” Trevor tells an interviewer for an Army video tribute to Travis Atkins. “That’s what makes me the most proud.”

Trevor has plenty of reason to feel proud lately. Earlier this month the White House announced that his father would be awarded the Medal of Honor.
