Medal of Honor recipient leaving the Army

From NBC's Jim Miklaszewski and Courtney Kube
A U.S. Army spokesperson confirms that Staff Sgt. Sal Giunta is not going to re-enlist when his tour is up in mid-June.

Giunta, the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War, had hinted for several months that he was keeping his options open and considering going to school. But he decided last week to use his GI benefits and get his undergraduate degree.

Giunta and his wife, Jenny, will move to Fort Carson, CO, later this year. No word yet on which school he will attend, but he will be close to Colorado State University.
