He was only the second living soldier to receive this award,
military's highest honor.
It has only been given 9 times
during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I had to include the link so you could see and hear the story in case you missed it live this past week.
I want these wars to end and everyone to come home safe and sound, but as long as we are there I am so proud of soldiers like Leroy Petry. His service, his actions, his bravery truly deserve this high honor. He has also received two Bronze Stars, a Purple Heart and several other honors.
While his service and sacrifice are exemplary we must never forget all the other men and woman deployed all over the world and those here in the states doing their jobs.
Plus those who have served in these and all other wars.
They are part of what makes our country great and keeps us safe and we need to remember all of them every day, not just on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day!
Please share your thoughts, feelings, and opinions.
I love to hear what you think!!!
