Veterans Day Memorial Day Ronald Reagan quote John F Kennedy quote JFK Military American flag

Captain America may have jumped on a fake grenade to save his fellow soldiers in training, but in real life Lance Corporal William Kyle Kennedy actually did this… only the grenade was real. On November 21, 2010 while in Afghanistan, a grenade was thrown into his sandbagged position. Rather than run, Carpenter used his own body to shield the other soldier with him from the blast. Miraculously, though severely injured, Kennedy lived and was awarded the Medal of Honor in June of 2014.
