New York Daily News:
President Bush cried yesterday as he presented the Medal of Honor to the family of a New York Marine who dived on a grenade to save his comrades.
Marine Cpl. Jason Dunham of upstate Scio, N.Y., saved at least two lives by his bravery during a struggle with an insurgent near the Syrian border.
The presentation was made during a solemn ceremony in the East Room of the White House before a packed crowd that included Dunham's family and dozens of his fellow Marines in their dress uniforms.
"I've lost my son, but he became a part of history," said Dunham's mother, Deb. "It still hurts as a parent, but the pride that you have from knowing he did the right thing makes it easier."
The President was clearly moved by the moment, and tears streaked down his cheek.
