Military honors this past week for a genuine American hero. United States Army Ranger, Sergeant First-Class Leroy Petry has been awarded the Medal of Honor for his conspicuous gallantry during combat operations. May 26, 2008, in Afghanistan, he and other Rangers proceeded to clear a building of insurgents. Once accomplished, they moved to an adjoining courtyard, where an enemy bullet went through both of Petry's legs. Wounded, but never hesitating, still under fire, seeking cover behind a chicken coop, he again resumed the mission. The exchange of gun-fire continued for several minutes, when, suddenly, an enemy grenade landed amidst the small Ranger group.
