In this very special episode of The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast, we’re joined by two of John’s good friends: Kyle Carpenter, the youngest living recipient of the Medal of Honor, and Don Yaeger, journalist and New York Times best-selling author.

Kyle and Don have recently written the book You Are Worth It: Building a Life Worth Fighting For, which was released in October and tells the incredible story of Kyle’s recovery from a grenade blast in Afghanistan. Kyle shares his story with us, along with his wisdom on what it takes to live a fulfilling life, while John Maxwell shares how Kyle’s story has impacted him so deeply.
