Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, a 22 year-old Marine and wounded veteran from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, was honored at the Iron Bowl, a yearly rivalry football game between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. During his time at the game, he was given access to the VIP suite at the stadium, memorabilia and the university donated its plane to fly him and his mother back to Washington, D.C. Carpenter was also on hand to announce the results of a pull-up challenge and a competition between each university to see which one could raise the most toys for the Marine Corps Reserves’ Toys For Tots program. Carpenter, from Columbia, S.C., is a huge fan of Auburn and was given this opportunity by the faculty and staff of the university and the Marines from Recruiting Station Montgomery, Ala.
