Amid driving snow and gusting winds, an American hero who received the Medal of Honor was honored at Soldier Field Sunday.

The nation's newest Medal of Honor recipient, Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore Guinta, was honored along the sidelines Sunday.

Last month, President Obama awarded him the Medal of Honor for his heroic service in Afghanistan.

Guinta is from Iowa but considers himself a Bears fan.

He is the first living soldier awarded the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War.
