“Retired U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Kyle Carpenter reflected on his time serving in Afghanistan and discussed how he turned his injury into opportunity in his new memoir, ‘You Are Worth It.’”

“Highlighting his book on Fox Nation’s ‘After the Show Show,’ Carpenter shared his motivation behind his work, nine years after his life changed forever.”

“‘I wrote this book to transcend all boundaries,’ Carpenter said. ‘I didn’t want only veterans or service members, or people that had been to combat, to only be able to take something from it. I wanted anyone to pick it up and not only be able to understand it, but to take lessons from it.’”

“‘Many of the lessons and perspectives that I’ve discussed came because I was forced to search for those silver linings during those long dark and painful nights in the hospital,’ Carpenter continued.”

“‘But now, I’m so thankful that I’ve had these amazing experiences from this bonus round that I’m living to tell people that it’s about perspective and how you look at things and that you can truly come back better and stronger than you were before … and come back smiling,’ he added.”
