Physical is all done. I just need to go back for my eye consultation then I swear in, set up my contract and pick a job. Then it is off to boot camp. The time is almost here!


June 19, 2014: 24-year-old retired Cpl. William “Kyle” Carpenter, who lost an eye after taking a grenade blast in Afghanistan to save a fellow Marine, received the Medal of Honor (the nation’s highest military honor.)

Carpenter required almost 40 surgeries and multiple skin grafts, President Obama said, leaving him with a prosthetic eye, a new jaw and teeth, and “one hell of a smile.”
