An enemy grenade attack and nearly 40 surgeries later, the Medal of Honor recipient went on Letterman to share his unbelievable journey to recovery that led him to complete the Marine Corps Marathon.
Cpl. Carpenter endured the numerous surgeries and painful therapies for two and a half years while in the hospital. Despite his injuries and challenges faced, he worked hard to train for the legendary marathon. Cpl. Carpenter’s act of valor was recognized when he recently became the second living Marine to receive the highest military decoration since the Vietnam War- the Medal of Honor.
