The photo you see below this text is of Josh Hargis, an Army Ranger recently severely wounded in a major firefight in Afghanistan. His Commanding Officer was presenting him with a Purple Heart, the US Army decoration for soldiers wounded in combat, and believed Josh was unconscious. That is, until he raised his right arm, despite the doctors and the multiple tubes, and saluted.
Go ahead and cry. I know I’ve been since I saw this about 15 minutes ago, on the NBC Nightly News.
