Rhode Island National Guard Airman Sgt. Gregory Grutter, of Cranston, is one of the few people you can truly call a hero.
His actions during a recent tour of duty in Afghanistan saved the lives of more than 100 people, mostly civilians.
Because of his extreme bravery and selfless actions, Cranston Mayor Allan W. Fung presented Grutter with a key to the city last night in City Hall.
Grutter, pictured here with his wife and two children, smiled and thanked everyone in attendance for the honor.
"I wish I could do more," he said humbly.
“It is an honor to have such a brave individual represent the City of Cranston as a member of our United States Armed Forces. Sgt. Grutter displayed uncommon valor and commitment to protecting innocents through his actions. As Mayor I am proud to count him as a resident of my city and happy to recognize his heroics.” said Mayor Fung.
