Ty Michael Carter (born January 1980) is a United States Army staff sergeant and recipient of the Medal of Honor, the United States of America's highest military honor, for his actions at the 2009 Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan. Carter and Army Sergeant First Class Leroy Petry are the only Medal of Honor recipients in any branch of service still on active duty.

Carter was born in Spokane, Wash., on January 25, 1980 and moved to California’s Bay Area in 1981. In 1991, his family moved back to Spokane, where he graduated from North Central High School in 1998. He later settled in Antioch, California. He and his wife Shannon Carter have three children, Jayden Young, Madison Carter and Sehara Carter.

Carter enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps October 13, 1998, and attended the Marine Corps Combat Engineer School. He later served in Okinawa, Japan, as an intelligence clerk. Carter showed promise in weapons’ marksmanship and was sent to Primary Marksmanship Instructor School in 1999. He served two short training deployments; one to San Clemente Island, Calif., and the other to Egypt, for Operation Bright Star. Carter was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps on Oct. 12, 2002. After his enlistment, Carter enrolled in college and studied biology at Los Medanos Community College in California. After his first daughter’s birth and some time traveling the United States, Carter opted to join the U.S. Army. Carter enlisted in the U.S. Army in January 2008 as a cavalry scout and received training at Fort Knox, Kentucky. From May 2009 to May 2010, he was deployed to Afghanistan with Bravo Troop, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. In October 2010, Carter was assigned as a Stryker gunner with the 8th Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. He was deployed to Afghanistan a second time in October 2012 and was thereafter stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord with the 7th Infantry Division. Carter works to de-stigmatize posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a condition from which he has suffered.
 


 


While on his first deployment in Afghanistan, Carter was stationed at Combat Outpost ("COP") Keating in Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province. On October 3, 2009, the outpost came under heavy attack and Carter, then a specialist, distinguished himself in what came to be known as the Battle of Kamdesh. He helped rescue a critically wounded comrade, Specialist Stephan L. Mace, from under intense fire, although Mace later died of his injuries. Carter returned three times across heavy enemy fire to bring ammunition to three fellow soldiers who were trapped in a Humvee. President Barack Obama awarded Carter with the Medal of Honor in a White House ceremony on August 26, 2013.

During his military career, Carter received a number of decorations. Carter is authorized to wear two service stripes, three Overseas Service Bars, as well as the Combat Service Identification Badge for the 4th Infantry Division and the Distinctive Unit Insignia of the 61st Cavalry Regiment. He also holds the Expert Infantryman Badge and one Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal. Carter's military decorations include the following awards:

Valorous Unit Award, Meritorious Unit Commendation, Combat Action Badge, Medal of Honor, Purple Heart Medal, Army Commendation Medal w/ four bronze Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Achievement Medal w/ two Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal w/ 2 service stars, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, NCO Professional Development Ribbon w/ award numeral 2, Army Service Ribbon, Army Overseas Service Ribbon, NATO Medal for service with ISAF, Air Assault Badge, and Expert marksmanship badge with one weapon clasp.

Medal of Honor Citation

Specialist Ty M. Carter distinguished himself by acts of 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 Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan on October 3, 2009. On that morning, Specialist Carter and his comrades awakened to an attack of an estimated 300 enemy fighters occupying the high ground on all four sides of Combat Outpost Keating, employing concentrated fire from recoilless rifles, rocket propelled grenades, anti-aircraft machine guns, mortars and small arms fire. Specialist Carter reinforced a forward battle position, ran twice through a 100 meter gauntlet of enemy fire to resupply ammunition and voluntarily remained there to defend the isolated position. Armed with only an M4 carbine rifle, Specialist Carter placed accurate, deadly fire on the enemy, beating back the assault force and preventing the position from being overrun, over the course of several hours. With complete disregard for his own safety and in spite of his own wounds, he ran through a hail of enemy rocket propelled grenade and machine gun fire to rescue a critically wounded comrade who had been pinned down in an exposed position. Specialist Carter rendered life extending first aid and carried the Soldier to cover. On his own initiative, Specialist Carter again maneuvered through enemy fire to check on a fallen Soldier and recovered the squad’s radio, which allowed them to coordinate their evacuation with fellow Soldiers. With teammates providing covering fire, Specialist Carter assisted in moving the wounded Soldier 100 meters through withering enemy fire to the aid station and before returning to the fight. Specialist Carter’s heroic actions and tactical skill were critical to the defense of Combat Outpost Keating, preventing the enemy from capturing the position and saving the lives of his fellow Soldiers. 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 and reflect great credit upon himself, Bravo Troop, 3d Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division and the United States Army.

Please remember the Canteen is here to honor, support and entertain our troops and their families.  This is a politics-free zone!  Thanks for helping us in our mission!

Cupbearer To The King
September 2, 2013

One of my favorite Bible passages that applies to work is Nehemiah 1–2. King Artaxerxes’ employee Nehemiah had been such an exemplary worker that the king wanted to honor him by helping him when he was sad that Jerusalem was still in ruins. He asked Nehemiah, “Why is your face sad? . . . What do you request?” (2:2,4). He wasn’t just any worker for the king, he was the cupbearer, the man who tasted the king’s drink to protect him from being poisoned. In order to have earned such a position, he apparently worked hard and honored God in everything he did. And the king granted his requests.

God cares about the way we work. Colossians 3:23 tells us, “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.” We can follow Nehemiah’s example in these ways: Be such a competent and trusted worker that God is honored (Neh. 1:11–2:6). Care passionately about others and what’s important to them. Take action, occasionally even risky action, to honor what’s important to God and to fellow believers (2:3-6).

When we honor God in work, our employers may notice. But even if they don’t, our heart’s desire and purpose should be to honor the One we really serve—the Lord our God (Col. 3:17,23).

O Lord, may the way I serve tell Your story!
I want to bring You all the glory in my work,
at home, and everywhere I go. Fill me and use
me to bless others and honor You today.
God honors faith because faith honors God.

Read: Nehemiah 2:1-8

Why is your face sad? . . . What do you request? —Nehemiah 2:2,4
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 137-139; 1 Corinthians 13

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

After the debacle with the ticks, I am afraid to take Lynn-Dah to the Gog park just yet. Right now our rides and walks are VERY controlled. No forays into shrubbery, mulch, or wooded area. I feel like a “Hover-Mom”, but I just can’t got through that ordeal again

We opened the Service today with three songs, and my little PA system makes GREAT monitors!

The back is acting up again - I got out into the Garden today, both front and back. It was hot as Hades. We laid a little sod over bare spots in the front. I was up and down the stairs to the back garden a couple of times - finished up by grilling some burgers, dogs and Brats for my assistants. I was done in by the time I made it back up to the living room.

Undergoing intense attitude adjustment as we speak.

You are quite wise to be wary of any place that she could pick up ticks again.

Gog park = Dog park.

I wonder if the Magog park is tick free?

Anyway, we have a rehearsal tomorrow in (ah bliss) an air conditioned classroom. It was SO hot in the tent this morning, I sweat right through my shirt and was soaked. I know the guitarist was uncomfortable because he kept peeling off layers of clothing. I am glad he had the good sense to quit at the undershirt level, or else we would have had a REAL interesting show!

Oh, we have Gog Park, Magog Park, Rosh Park, Tubal Park, and even Gomer Park.

But on a more serious note, we REALLY DO have Jaco Patorius Park, named after a legendary, brilliant Bass Player who died tragically at the hands of a nightclub bouncer.

Imagine being the jerk who beat one of the best jazz bassists to death because he didn’t recognize him?

There is a big fan, the size of an airplane propeller, but it doesn’t reach the stage area. I think today’s problem was humidity. It rained on and off, and the moisture just clung in the 90 degree air.

On a brighter note, one member brought breakfast enchiladas, egg and sausage biscuits, and fruit, and another brought donuts.

We should issue those handheld fans famous in old-time southern churches.

Happy Labor Day to you as well, Mooch. Hope your summer is going well. Any signs of fall yet?

I will be working, as a new system for payroll and accounting will be going live at 7a Monday morning.

Testing has been going on for 4 months...fix something, break something...repeat. We will see.

Thanks, unique, for the pastries.

Cookies?

Pancakes?

Treats?

Good morning LUV and (((HUGS))). I saw an owl on my walk this morning. Pup had a hard time figuring out what the noise was, and was watching it sitting on the utility pole. She has walked into mailboxes doing that before.
