Fort Campbell, KY – Staff Sgt. James P. Hunter was posthumously awarded the Kentucky Medal of Freedom, May 28th. His Family accepted the honor during a ceremony held in Lexington, KY.

In April of 2009, I, then Pfc. Joe Padula, was introduced to a young, strong man of about 24 years old. He stood tall in a stance, built with confidence. He wore a combat patch on his right sleeve. I could tell this man has been tested before, and I was a lost Soldier at Fort Campbell who had just found Staff Sgt. James P. Hunter — thank God.

Fort Campbell Strike Soldier graduates Air Assault School despite Amputation

Fort Campbell, KY – For almost 12-miles he has been carrying about 35-pounds of gear. He sees a clock in the near distance with red digital numerals closing in on the three-hour mark, the time limit for the near half marathon march.

He wants to sprint to the finish line, but his face winces with every right step taken. His breaths are heavy and pain can be heard with each inhale. His left leg is in full stride, but his right, being amputated more than six years ago, now pushes forward on a damaged prosthetic; a piston broke a few miles back eliminating fluid motion. He picks up a faster, but still a limping pace.

Sgt. 1st Class Greg Robinson, a combat engineer with Company A, 2nd Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), pours water over himself moments before finishing the12-mile road march for The Sabalauski Air Assault School at Fort Campbell, April 29. Robinson is the first amputee to graduate the school and says, “A disability is only a disability if you let it hold you down.” (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Joe Padula, 2nd BCT PAO, 101st Abn. Div.)
