Kyle Carpenter - Marine Hero, will receive the Medal Of Honor for his incredible actions.
Carpenter, a 21-year-old lance corporal, intentionally covered an active grenade in order to save the life of his friend and fellow soldier, Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio. The blast nearly killed them both.
Carpenter lost his right eye, suffered a shattered jaw, and 30 breaks throughout his right arm. He also lost most of his teeth and still has scaring on his face from the shrapnel.
How many people do you know that would ACTUALLY do this? Some say they would…but how many do you know that would sacrifice their own lives?
