    In this July 12, 2011 file photo, President Barack Obama awards U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry the Medal of Honor during a ceremony at the White House in Washington. Petry, who received the honor for bravery in Afghanistan, lost his right hand when attempting to throw back an enemy grenade aimed at his group. He self-administered first-aid that saved his life, part of a major shift in managing war wounds that new research shows has had success in the Army's major raid force.
