Team FastraxFlying our Nations colors over Philadelphia and landing in front of Independence Hall is special to Team Fastrax for two reasons, the first being that our Nations Independence started right here. The second is that it has never been done before. To top it off, it is Flag Day and the birthday of the United States Army. So when you see these six enormous flags flying above Philadelphia at noon, take a moment to reflect upon the ‘freedom’ that you have and the human lives freely given for you to have it.”

SALUTING OUR MILITARY: 

Leroy Arthur Petry (born 29 July 1979) is a sergeant first class in the United States Army and recipient of the United States Armed Forces’ highest combat decoration, the Medal of Honor, for actions in 2008 during Operation Enduring Freedom.

Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Petry had an active youth, and joined the Army after high school. Completing the Ranger Indoctrination Program, he saw extensive deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan as a member of the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. On 26 May 2008 during his seventh deployment, Petry was a member of a team on a mission to capture a Taliban target in Paktia Province. Despite being wounded in both legs by gunfire, Petry continued to fight and give orders. When a grenade landed between him and two other soldiers, Petry grabbed it and attempted to throw it away from them when it exploded, saving the soldiers’ lives but severing his right hand.

Petry, who now wears a prosthesis, became the second recent living recipient of the medal for the war in Afghanistan when he received the award from President Barack Obama in 2011. Opting to reenlist in spite of his wounds, Petry remains on active duty in the Army where he assists wounded soldiers and their families. He is the only Medal of Honor recipient from any branch of service still on active duty.
