According to CNN, Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos, and Anthony Sadler along with a British man tackled and restrained Ayoub El Khazzani, a man who boarded a high-speed passenger train in France with an assualt weapon, an automatic pistol with extra ammo, and a box cutter.

The men are being honored today by French President Francois Hollande for preventing what could have been a violent and deadly attack.
