Soldier breaks gavel at NYSE

New York - The New York State Exchange has a new gavel.

Wednesday night, former Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts was honored as he rang the closing bell on the Exchange. Pitts was awarded the Medal of Honor earlier in the week.

His enthusiasm grew as he applauded, then rapped the gavel three times. On the third stroke, the gavel snapped in half.

Those around him gasped, then shared in the laughter.
