Army reservist James Yates was two hours away from being honored for heroism when he made another dramatic rescue near his Iowa home. Yates, who completed tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a team that searched for IEDs. But one bomb they did not find, and its forceful blast wrecked their vehicle and left Yates with potentially lifelong physical injuries. He was awarded a purple heart for bravery and was set to be recognized at an Iowa Barnstormers game. Two hours before, neighbor Courtney Pearson had put a jack under her SUV to check a leak. The jack gave out and the car pinned her to the ground - frantic, she sent her kids for help and they came to Yates's door. He rushed to the scene, wrestling with the jack to free Pearson. Then, he rushed to the game to be honored. "He's an amazing person," Pearson says. Yates insists it's what anyone in that situation would do.
