Tapper’s article on former SSG Romesha is truly a must-read. As Twitchy reported, Jake Tapper fought to have veterans flown in for Clint Romesha’s Medal of Honor ceremony.

Twitter users and Nationals fans honor former SSG Romesha as well.

We would have loved to be at @nationals Park to give Staff Sergeant and MOH recipient Clint Romesha a quilt after he throws the 1st pitch.
