Bennie Adkins, Medal of Honor Recipient

The Army brought its top brass to Washington this week for its annual Association of the U.S. Army Expo. Among the dignitaries, an unusual recipient of the Medal of Honor.

Adkins tells Emily Kopp how he learned he would receive the nation's highest military award.

Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, Chief of Staff, U.S. Army

Only a few weeks ago, Army leadership was planning to shrink its force to levels unseen since before World War II. But that was before Islamic State terrorists threatened to take over Iraq and Syria, before Russia invaded Ukraine and before the U.S. began deploying 4,000 troops to West Africa to help control the Ebola outbreak. Now the Army's Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, suggests the Army and political leaders need to rethink their plans. He spoke with Emily Kopp at the Association of the Army Expo about the Army's next steps.
