Soldier stops shooting in Los Vegas honored

KFYR is reporting:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ A North Dakota National Guard soldier
from Crosby is slated to be honored today.
Justin Lampert helped subdue a
gunman in a Las Vegas casino last summer. He's getting the Army's Soldier's
Medal at a ceremony today at the state Capitol in Bismarck. The medal is a
non-combat award for heroism by a soldier.
Authorities say Lampert tackled a
man who opened fire with a handgun inside the New York-New York hotel-casino in
Las Vegas last July. The shooting wounded four people and caused a panic that
left another person injured.
Lampert, a veteran of the Iraq War, was in Las
Vegas to attend a bachelor party when the incident happened.

This gentleman really speaks to the best of who we are as a people to engage an active shooter unarmed makes him a hero and someone that should be honored by all Americans.
