Standing on a mountain peak named after her best friend and fallen comrade, Army Spc. Lori Piestewa, Lynch was awarded a warrior's medal of valor by American Indians during a sunrise ceremony Wednesday. Piestewa, a member of the Hopi Tribe and a single mother of two, is believed to be the first American Indian woman killed while fighting for the U.S. military.
