The first living service member from the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq to receive the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military honor has decided not to re-enlist and end his Army career.

Medal of Honor recipient and Iowa native Staff Sgt. Sal Giunta will end his Army career in June and move to Colorado to pursue his education, a military spokesman said Tuesday.

Giunta has opted not to re-enlist and will leave the Army in mid-June, said Army spokesman George Wright. Giunta and his wife, Jenny, plan to move to Fort Collins, Colo., where he will attend school.

His decision not to re-enlist was made before Giunta received the medal, his public affairs officer Todd Oliver wrote in an e-mail on Tuesday from Italy.
