In November 2010, Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter’s battalion was tasked with taking over a compound in Afghanistan, when a grenade landed on the roof where he was standing. He dove on it to save the life of a fellow marine, absorbing much of the blast that seriously wounded him. He was awarded the Medal of Honor on Thursday. Carpenter recalls his story and what followed to Jeffrey Brown.
