JACKSON, Miss. — At the time, it was viewed only as a cute photograph: A blonde-haired, 3-year-old boy in a white shirt, his head slightly tilted, his eyes and mouth smiling only as a child's can, and his right hand poised and touching just above his temple in a full-fledged salute.

Two decades later, one has to wonder if it was a sign that retired Marine Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter, born in Jackson on Oct. 17, 1989, somehow already knew at least part of his life's path, which Thursday will include the East Room of the White House. Carpenter will become the third Mississippian to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. military distinction. It is awarded for valor far and beyond the call of duty during combat. Carpenter more than qualifies.
