Medal of Honor Winner Talks About Prosthetic Hand (Video)
It's not everyday a prosthetic hand makes national news. But when President Barack Obama reached out to shake the prosthetic hand of Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry, the picture of the handshake captured a lot of folks' hearts. Petry lost his hand and much of his forearm when he picked up a live grenade and attempted to throw it away from his fellow soldiers to save their lives. His heroic move earned him the nation's highest military honor, the Medal of Honor.
