The Town of Steilacoom honors Medal of Honor recipient and resident Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry.

For his actions on May 26, 2008 in and around Paktya Province, Afghanistan, then Staff Sgt. Petry, a Ranger with 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, threw away an enemy gr***de, protecting and saving the lives of two wounded, fellow Rangers. He lost his right hand and sustained other injuries in the process.

Petry is only the second living recipient of the nation's highest award for valor in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. On March 3, 1863, an Act of Congress authorized the Medal of Honor.

We honor you, Leroy Petry.

Dear New Mexico Comrades, My name is Warren Hunt. I live in Michigan, and am a life member of both VVA (Chapter 35, Toledo, Ohio) and the VFW. I’m also a retired active duty Army E-7, beginning with service in Vietnam in 68-69 with the First Infantry Division. In 2018 I published a memoir, “Reflections on the Vietnam War: A Fifty-Year Journey,” an overview of what the Vietnam Era looked like to me. It covers the span of time from when I was in high school, through my Army service in Nam, culminating with my attendance at the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. in 1982. The book is available at amazon.com in paperback as well as Kindle format. A link to my book’s website is attached here: www.facebook.com/rvw50. This memoir has been included by Bowling Green State University and Lourdes University as part of the reading list for their classes on the Vietnam War. In addition, it has received positive reviews from well-known literary publications, including Manhattan Book Review, Publishers Weekly/Book Life, and the VVA Veteran: Books in Review (Henry Zeybel). In April of 2018 an excerpt from my book appeared in a special commemorative issue of USA Today: “Echoes from Vietnam.” “Reflections on the Vietnam War: A Fifty-Year Journey” has been well-received by readers; including Vietnam veterans and their family members. Many non-veterans, especially younger people, have also found it enlightening as an aid to gaining a broader perspective on the Vietnam War era. I am now in the process of sharing my work with local veterans organizations; not to make money, but because I have been told I should share it by so many people who find it an inspiring and informative read. Best wishes to your post members for a safe and pleasant summer. Sincerely, Warren Hunt Vietnam 68-69
I just realized that the Memorial doesn't have anything at all relating to the Civil War. Yet New Mexico was a theater of war in those years, and there were battles that took place here - indeed, there was a battle right here in Albuquerque. It puzzles me to know why the New Mexico Veterans Memorial would totally ignore the bloodiest war in American history, one in which New Mexicans took part.
Happy 100th Birthday June! I’m still proud to be an American and honored to participate in this celebration for June, a true American, that served in the Navy as a nurse during WWII. Let’s not forget all our Veterans and Active Duty military that are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice of dying for our country so that we may have the freedoms we all too often take for granted... especially lately! #proudtobeamerican #loveourveterans 🇺🇸
Thank you You are honorable Warriors Real men of honor Thank you
The end of a great day at the NM Veterans Memorial. Perfect New Mexico sunset, with a little bit of alpenglow highlighting the Sandias and our flag proudly flying in the breeze. The Celebration of Life for Cpl Santiago Lucero was a truly touching tribute...many tears and much laughter. Thanks to the Board of Directors for unanimously approving the contribution making the funeral services possible.
