President Barack Obama presented Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry with the Medal of Honor for heroics in Afghanistan.
Petry is only the second living recipient of the nation’s highest military honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan. The Army Ranger, who works as a wounded warrior liaison helping other injured soldiers, is the fifth man to receive the Medal of Honor for actions in Afghanistan.
He lost his right hand while tossing an enemy grenade away from fellow soldiers in Afghanistan.
