WEDNESDAY’S #REDS LINEUP; VOTTO VS. MILWAUKEE
From my pal @Bongreatness...
Offering up one of our ceremonial first pitches this evening will be Medal of Honor Recipient – Specialist Ty M. Carter, on behalf of GE. The Medal of Honor was created during the American Civil War and is the highest military decoration presented by the United States government to a member of its armed forces. Specialist Carter is one of fourteen recipients of the Medal of Honor stemming from heroic service during the War in Afghanistan. Specialist Carter received this distinguished honor for his conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a Scout with Bravo Troop, 3d Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, during combat operations against an armed enemy in Afghanistan. Specialist Ty M. Carter’s extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service.
