FAIRBANKS — A Medal of Honor recipient will be in Fairbanks this week to talk to soldiers and airmen about behavioral health care. 

Master Sgt. Leroy Petry is a retired Army Ranger who received the military’s highest honor for grabbing a grenade thrown near him and saving the life of fellow soldiers during a 2008 attack on a Taliban compound in Afghanistan’s Paktia province. Petry is one of 72 living Medal of Honor recipients.
