For Immediate Release size0October 28, 2015 | Tysons Corner, Virginia  

 “Nobody joins the military for medals” said Captain Florent “Flo” Groberg yesterday morning at the monthly Objective Rally Point networking breakfast held by Offit Kurman attorney. On November 12, 2015 Captain Groberg will receive the Medal of Honor at a ceremony at the White House. The breakfast attendees were honored to have him speak, but he remained humble by saying that the heroes are the ones who lost their lives on August 8, 2012. Captain Groberg went to on say that he lives his life for the four men he lost, and he would give anything to bring them back. Captain Groberg spent nearly three years rehabilitating at Walter Reed Medical Center and mentioned how he could not have transitioned into civilian life without the help of several fellow Veterans and supporters. Groberg highlighted Warriors Ethos, an organization that helps veterans in their transition. They gave him the tools and support he needed to prepare for his new life as a civilian. He went on to emphasize the importance of helping other Veterans through this transition, some are as young as 21 and have no idea how to plan for what comes next. He urged all the veterans in attendance to lend a helping hand to those in need. Groberg’s speech was followed by a standing ovation.
