Medal of Honor Recipient Leroy Petry

Jon Stewart just had an awesome interview with Sergeant Leroy Petry.  Sergeant Petry is the latest, living, recipient of the Medal of Honor.  A very brave and honorable soldier, he has an amazing story to tell.  Whether you agree or disagree with the war, is moot.  What’s amazing about his story is the amount of courage, bravery and selflessness that one man can have towards his troops. His story can inspire us all the be better people (and he also shows off his kick-ass new robotic arm).

 

Here’s the interview with Jon Stewart:

Wow, it surprises me that they would actually put Sergeant Leroy Petry on TV without some sort of political endorsement. It sickens me to see people like Sergeant Leroy Petry not getting more respect and praise for defending this great nation and sacrificing so much. Instead our TV is filled with political scandals and celebrity drug cases that people actually follow like a hawk. It's nice to see someone giving him respect, praise, and admiration for what he did for all of us. Thank You Sergeant Leroy Petry for your sacrifice!
