Medal of Honor Winner Anthony Kahoohanohano Honored

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-In 1951, during the Korean War 21-year-old Anthony Kahoohanohano sent his men out of harm's way during a firefight with a group of North Korean soldiers.
     As his men fell back to safety, he gathered grenades and firearms and single handedly fought the enemy until his ammunition ran out. He was awarded the "Medal of Honor" posthumously. Joining us now is Kahoohanohano's nephew George. Check out the video!
