Retired Green Beret shot down by Taliban now studying at UNC to be a surgeon


This month marks the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. After that tragic day, one local man joined the military, and 16 years later, Karl Holt is helping others — even as he still has a long way to go to help himself. “There’s a lot of people who can have courage on the battlefield,” Holt said. “It’s a whole other level of courage to deal with yourself.” (WNCN)
