Former Sergeant Kyle White will be the seventh living MoH recipient from the latest operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. On their way back from a patrol, White’s platoon was ambushed. In the ensuing battle, White was briefly knocked unconscious by an RPG blast, applied two tourniquets to one of his wounded brothers, tried to save another in vain, kept firing back at the enemy, radioed for MEDEVAC, and then had to hold the position throughout the night until the birds arrived. Read the whole thing.

It’s hard to imagine what that must have been like. Time probably slows down, making minutes feel like hours. And then to be under heavy fire, watching the men around you go down one after another, and still continuing the fight… just.. damn.

Here’s a brief photo gallery of White from his days in the military. Thank you for your service, Kyle!
