MEDAL OF HONOR WINNER AT VETERAN'S MASS




Sgt. First Class Leroy Petry, who served in Enduring Freedom and who is a recipient of the Medal of Honor says in an interview for 1010 WINS that he is privileged  to participate in the Veterans Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral and to march in the New York City Veteran's Day Parade. Petry received the  Medal of Honor for - while wounded by gunfire - grabbing a grenade to throw it away, saving the lives of soldiers under his command but severing his right hand in the process.

More from 1010 WINS.
