Special Forces are considered the military’s elite - the Rangers, Green Berets, and Navy SEALS among others. And the elite of the elite are the Special Forces who have been awarded the Medal of Honor.
Two of them were recognized this week and their names added to the Special Operations Memorial Wall of Honor at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
Sergeant First Class Leroy Petry, an Army Ranger, watched as his name was unveiled. It is one of 45 names etched into the black granite tiles.
