Medal of Honor Recipient Accidentally Smashes NYSE Gavel, The Reaction is Priceless

Former Army Staff Sgt. Ryan M. Pitts began the week with being presented the Medal of Honor by President Obama on Monday for his outstanding service during a battle in Afghanistan.

On Friday, Pitts got to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. The bell ringing went flawlessly. Then came the banging of the gavel. That’s when Pitts’ week takes a funny turn. His third ceremonial gavel strike cracked it in half, sending it flying into the crowd.

His reaction is priceless as is everyone’s around him.
