  Medal of Honor Recipient Master Sgt Leroy Petry Speaks  
(Corps)

Medal of Honor recipient Master Sgt. Leroy Petry (retired) will speak to the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. His talk is part of the Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series and is open to the public.

Public seating is available behind the cadets in the back half of the auditorium.

On May 26, 2008, he was serving as a weapons squad leader with D Company, 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment in Paktya Province, Afghanistan, when his unit was attacked. Wounded in both legs, he led his Rangers to cover.

A grenade explosion wounded two Rangers with shrapnel, and a second then landed a few feet away. Petry picked up the grenade in an effort to throw it away from the men.

Petry lost his right hand and was fitted with a prosthetic.
