On Friday, October 25, 2013, T2 welcomed a very special guest: Medal of Honor recipient Staff Sgt. Ty Carter. Carter is the first and only Medal of Honor recipient to have visited our offices. It’s not every day that you get to meet a true hero, much less get his opinion on some of our products and developments.
Before we tell you a little about his visit, here’s a little background about him and the actions that earned him the U.S. military’s highest honor:
Service members who deploy or are otherwise separated from their families due to mission needs now have an online resource allowing them to hone their parenting skills as they reconnect with their children.
Pam Murphy, the Defense Department’s lead psychologist for the website, said the launch of http://www.militaryparenting.org offers unprecedented, comprehensive and free computer-based training from a service member’s perspective on parenting and building strong relationships with their children.
The Humvee engine rumbles as you drive through a stretch of desert in Iraq, past the occasional cluster of low buildings along a street strewn with trash.
Suddenly, the vehicle in front of you explodes and the sky begins to fill with smoke. Just beyond the wreck, you see the silhouette of an insurgent shooting to kill any survivors or rescuers. As the scene plays out on tiny screens mounted to the goggles you wear, the radio chatter playing in your headphones erupts in panic, and the smell of diesel fuel wafts over you.
