US President Barack Obama (R) presents the Medal of Honor to Command Sergeant Major Louis Wilson of the New York National Guard, who is accepting on behalf of the late Army Private Henry Johnson, for actions while serving in France during World War IPresident Barack Obama posthumously awarded black and Jewish World War I veterans medals of honor Tuesday, saying it was "never too late to say thank you" after decades of muted acknowledgement of their heroism. Almost a hundred years after a gravely wounded African-American soldier called Henry Johnson repelled an 12-strong armed German raiding party using only a bolo knife, he received America's highest military honor. President Barack Obama oversaw a White House ceremony dedicated to the memory of the private who suffered 21 wounds and died, penniless and an alcoholic, a decade after events on the Western Front on May 15, 1918.
