That's Corporal Desmond Doss receiving the Medal of Honor from President Truman.  
We watched Hacksaw Ridge last night, the amazing story of how Doss, an Army medic and conscientious objector, saved 75 men during the battle for Okinawa. 
I'm not sure the film qualified as entertainment, but it was remarkable, and truly moving.
In what can only be considered a truly odd coincidence, when I opened Facebook this morning I saw a post from Governor Greg Abbott. It said that one of the Navy ships whose big guns provided artillery support for the battle for Okinawa was the Battleship Texas.
