Here is a news item from CBS on the above story , dated 5/16/12 :

(CBS/AP) WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to a Pennsylvania Army specialist killed in combat in 1970 while serving as a rifleman in Cambodia during the Vietnam War.

Spec. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. received the medal posthumously for heroic action when his platoon was ambushed by North Vietnamese forces in 1970 near the village of Se San in eastern Cambodia.
