Governor Linda Lingle and State Adjutant General Robert Lee presented Jase Brostrom, 7, the Hawaii Medal of Honor. Jase's father 1st Lt. Jonathan Brostrom was among nine U.S. soldiers killed in a firefight when enemy troops swarmed a remote combat outpost.
"It means a lot. That award is from the people of Hawaii. It's not something that is just given out lightly. And I think Jase realized that, and he's going to remember it for the rest of his life," said David Brostrom, Jonathan's father and Jase's grandfather.
