(NATIONAL) -- A U.S. Army Ranger formerly assigned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Pierce County will be presented the Medal of Honor by President Barack Obama on July 12.

With the award for conspicuous gallantry under fire, Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry becomes only the second living Medal of Honor Recipient from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Petry will receive the medal for his courageous actions during combat operations against an armed enemy in Paktya, Afghanistan, May 26, 2008, according to the U.S. Army News.

He lost his right hand and suffered shrapnel wounds after throwing an armed grenade away from his fellow Soldiers.

Petry now serves as part of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Benning, Ga.

At the time of his heroic action Petry was assigned to Company D, 2nd Bn., 75th Ranger Regiment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

His actions came as part of a rare daylight raid to capture a high-value target.

Petry is the ninth service member to have been named a recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Of prior recipients, all but Petry and one other solider were awarded the honor posthumously.
