    He did all of this after having been wounded in both legs. As with most of the other MOH citations - words fail me.

    My oldest is a CPT in the 101st ABN DIV. He bristles terribly at the blasé use of the word "hero" by most people. It does not help that he made and heard radio calls in Afghanistan in which the term "hero" was used to describe the KIA in his unit. Anyone who calls him a hero is likely to receive a very tight smile, and have him walk away as quickly as possible. SSGT Petry definitely qualifies for the title.
