I've just been informed by the 4th Engineer Battalion they are naming an award: The Russell James York Award for Meritorious Service and a room after him at Fort Carson, CO. In addition, I've submitted him for the Medal of Honor which would upgrade his Silver and Bronze Star medals. The whole thing is an incredible honor for me and my family. If it goes as planned, we'll be at the White House for the ceremony.
