He has been awarded the United States Army Soldier's Medal from U.S. President Barack Obama and has received France's highest decoration, the Legion of Honour, from French president Fran�ois Hollande.

"This year has been a whirlwind of emotions and activities, and I can't think of a better way to cap it off than to tour America with my 'DWTS' family while being able to greet everyone who has been so supportive of me during this year. This has been an experience of a lifetime," said Alek Skarlatos.
