Medal of Honor Homecoming

August 2, 2011 • Uncle Jesse

My hat's off to all y'all for lining the plaza with flags yesterday for SFC Leroy A. Petry.  It was a stirring turnout for one of the only living recipients of the honor who, I'm told, was part of the last Senior class at St. Catherines.  President Obama awarded Petry the Medal of Honor for "conspicuous gallantry" on July 12, 2011, and yesterday's parade and reception was a fitting Homecoming tribute for one of Santa Fe's own.

I managed to take a bunch of pictures from the bed of the Outlaw truck and hope to figure out how to post 'em on this here site.  Take a gander and see if you can spot yourselves or your friends and neighbors flying Old Glory, smiling, waving, and showing your support for Ranger SFC Petry.

See the rest of the photos on Outlaw's Facebook page.

(^_^) JESSE!
