Tough As Nails, Full of Honor

Sometimes we forget that our soldiers are not just as tough as nails, they’re also full of heart and honor.

Check out this moving story.  A soldier survived a bomb which killed several of his friends. When awarded the purple heart for his service — a tradition before being flown to Germany for treatment — his commander came in and awarded him the purple heart.

Everyone in the room assumed he was unconscious, but he was actually giving every ounce of strength he had to salute.  Watch the video here.

Thank you, U.S. Army Ranger Cpl. Josh Hargis, for not just your service.  Thanks for reminding us what true courage looks like.
