Kyle Carpenter was on watch with friend Nicholas Eufrazio in November of 2010 when he spotted a grenade and used his own body to cover it in order to save his friend’s life.  His body forced the grenade to blast down and his flack vest saved him from having shrapnel enter his body.  Though both obtained severe injuries, due to Kyle’s bravery, both lived to see another day.

Kyle received injuries that included losing his right eye, blowing his right eardrum, fracturing his nose, shattering his jaw and cheekbones, losing most of his teeth, and breaking his arm in more than 30 places.  Nicholas received injuries to the frontal lobe of his brain, rendering him unable to speak until 2012.

Since the war started in Afghanistan in 2001, only two other soldiers have received the Medal of Honor.  Kyle will be the third.  Kyle is a true hero by risking his life to save a friend.  You can follow his journey and help support him by joining a Facebook page set up to honor him.
