Ammunition was starting to run out, so Ty Carter and other members of his Black Knight troop volunteered to deliver more -- a hundred yards away across the heaviest of gunfire.

Carter didn't think twice about the danger. All he knew was there were three fellow soldiers -- Sgt. Bradley Larson, Spc. Stephan Mace and Sgt. Justin Gallegos -- trapped in a Humvee and they needed more supplies to return fire.

“All you could do was dig in and save your brother,”-Ty Carter

In our celebrity obsessed, Miley Cyrus VMA, Kim Kardashian world that elevates a person for simply being famous or being outrageous in public, I tip my hat to this young man who reminds us of the honor and service that makes this country great.

Thank you for posting the YouTube link. An excellent soldier for people to strive to emulate.

I loved that even when he went off script and started answering questions he still emphasized that it was a group effort and he refused to take all the credit for himself.
