Why we serve: Sgt. Michael Krapels

U.S. Army Sgt. Michael Krapels, a 25-year-old team leader for Chosen Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, gets promoted to sergeant during a ceremony at Forward Operating Base Airborne in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, Jan. 1, 2013. Krapels, a native of Sparta, N.J., was deployed with Chosen Company during 2010 when he was injured by machine gun fire. After more than 20 surgeries and rehabilitation, he fought to return and deploy again with Chosen Company. Krapels received a battlefield promotion and was pinned by Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Ferrusi, who was also with 2nd Battalion during Operation Enduring Freedom X. (U.S. Army Photo by TF 2-503)
