In honor of Memorial Day, and because I haven’t found anything “man-complishment” worthy in the news of late, here is a link to a news article chronicling the most recent recipient of the medal of honor. Notable quotes from the article include:
Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry will be the second living, active-duty service member to receive the nation’s highest military decoration for actions in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars
A second grenade landed even closer to the three wounded Rangers — just a few feet away. Petry grabbed it and tried to toss it away, but it exploded in his hand.
Petry placed a tourniquet on his own right arm before reporting that he had been wounded again and that the firefight was ongoing.
