PHOTOS: President Obama awards 24 Medals of Honor

US President Barack Obama stands alongside Lenora Alvarado as he awards a Medal of Honor to her late father Army Specialist Four Leonard Alvarado during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House in Washington on March 18, 2014. Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to 24 veterans, 3 of whom are still living, who fought in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, most of whom were previously denied the prestigious honor due to their Hispanic, black or Jewish backgrounds. The ceremony results from a Pentagon review of Jewish and Hispanic war records ordered by Congress in 2002. AFP PHOTO / Saul LOEB (Photo credit should read SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images)
