Posted Updated
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A Fort Bragg soldier received one of the Army's top honors for risking his life to save a fellow soldier.

Sgt. Scott Smullen earned the Soldier's Medal -- the highest peacetime award for heroism.

Back in April, Smullen ran through a minefield in Afghanistan to rescue a soldier who stepped on a land mine and lost his foot.
