On Wednesday, Staff Sergeant Travis W. Atkins received posthumously the National Medal of Honor from President Donald Trump.

Atkins, of Bozeman, was killed on June 1, 2007 when he tackled a suicide bomber who detonated his vest. Atkins’ actions saved the lives of three of his fellow soldiers during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Jack & Elaine Atkins of Bozeman, along with his son, Trevor Oliver, were in Washington D.C. to receive the Medal of Honor from President Donald Trump for Staff Sergeant Atkins.
