By Richard Pratt

At least four Medal of Honor recipients are scheduled to appear at the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Nebraska to answer questions and meet people.

One of those men is Hiawatha native Salvatore Giunta.

The museum is one of many stops he is making after earning the award. Last night, he was in Times Square for the ball drop.

The 25-year-old Army staff sergeant is the only living soldier from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to receive the nation's highest honor for his actions in combat.
