On this Veterans Day, we honor the Medal of Honor recipient Ty Carter.

Sergeant Carter s mission these days is helping fellow soldiers deal with Post Traumatic Stress. He specifically won t call it a disorder because he says it s a natural response to a tragic event.

Carter spends about one day a week on post at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, basically for paperwork, answering emails and to double check his schedule. Then it s off to events all over the country.

We feel deep in our hearts that we will actually save a life. Even if it's just one person, one life, just somebody that I shook hands with or spoke to, said Carter.

Carter does a lot of public speaking. He's booked out at least a month. He recently visited the town of West, Texas, the location of a massive fertilizer plant explosion in April.
