A day after Kyle White received the highest military honor from President Barack Obama, he is getting another form of recognition for his service: he was inducted into the hall of heroes.

Fewer than 3500 people have been inducted into the hall of heroes.

The ceremony lasted about an hour at the Pentagon Wednesday.

Tuesday, White received the medal of honor. He's one of only 7 people to receive the medal while still living.

He's credited with saving lives and equipment during a dangerous mission. Six soldiers died in the attack.

At the hall of heroes induction ceremony, White said, "It was the worst day of my life. That day – those smells and sights changed my life. But at least I have a life. I was given a gift on 9th November - a gift that 6 of my brothers didn’t get."

He went on to say, “While my name hangs in the Hall of Heroes, the names of these 6 men will hang in my heart and wrist forever.”

White joined the Army in 2006, from Washington State. He attended basic training, advanced individual training, and U.S. Army Airborne School consecutively, at Fort Benning, Ga., before being assigned to the 2-503rd, at Camp Ederle, Italy, from 2006 to 2008. While assigned to the 2-503rd.

White deployed to Aranas, Afghanistan, in spring 2007, where he served as a platoon radio telephone operator. He was assigned to the 4th Ranger Training Battalion, at Fort Benning, from 2008 to 2010. White departed the active-duty Army in May 2011.
