“Obama to bestow Medal of Honor to combat vet for daylong Afghan fight”
“Ty Carter…will be recognized…on Aug. 26 for his action during a…firefight…where U.S. troops were far outnumbered.
Carter killed enemy troops, resupplied ammunition…rendered first aid…risked his own life to save an injured soldier pinned down by…enemy fire…
“It wasn’t just me,” Carter told the Military Times… “Everyone pulled through. They all performed excellently, bravely.
“I really wish there was some way that I could share the prestige and the honor of this medal with them, and not to mention the families of the fallen,” Carter said. “In the end, they probably deserve this medal more than I do because of the losses that they received.”
