The story of Kyle Carpenter is one all Americans should know... It's a story of heroism, determination, and an amazing recovery. 

Kyle Carpenter enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2009. In 2010, Carpenter was sent to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. 



The story of his injuries is nothing short of heroic.

According to CBSnews:

Lance Cpl. William "Kyle" Carpenter and Lance Cpl. Nicholas Eufrazio were on a rooftop in Helmand Province in Afghanistan in November 2010 when they were attacked by enemy fighters. A live grenade landed on the roof next to both men, and Carpenter threw himself between the grenade and his fellow Marine

Eufrazio "received a shrapnel injury to the head from the grenade," while Carpenter's body "absorbed a majority of the resulting explosion," according to the official Marine Corps' account of the incident.

Carpenter sustained an almost unbelievable array of injuries, including a skull fracture and a punctured lung. Doctors at a nearby military hospital pronounced him dead on arrival, sure he wouldn't survive.

Here are nine well-known businesses that actually worked with the Nazis during World War II. Some of these may surprise you. 

Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss began making Nazi uniforms in the 1930s. Boss joined the Nazi party and was given the contract to make the SS, storm trooper, and Hitler youth uniforms. Due to the fact that the Nazi uniform manufacturing went so well, Hugo Boss ended up needing slave laborers. H/T War History Online [intermarkets_ad]

 

Volkswagen

The man behind Volkswagen and Porsche, Ferdinand Porsche, met with Hitler in 1934. There they discussed the creation of a “people’s car.” Hitler wanted this car to be shaped “like a beetle.” The Volkswagen Beetle was designed for the Nazis, while Hitler named the car. Volkswagen also used slave laborers and, due to Ferdinand Porsche’s connection to Himmler, he was able to request slaves from Auschwitz. H/T War History Online [intermarkets_ad]
