Default God bless you Cpl. Josh Hargis!

Cpl. Josh Hargis, is an Army Ranger, severely injured in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber in an attack that killed 4 other members of the 3rd Army Ranger Battalion and injured 12 other soldiers.

This is according to Taylor Hargis, Cpl. Hargis' wife:

This is an excerpt from a letter she received from the commander that was awarding Cpl. Hargis the Purple Heart.

"Josh whom everyone in the room (50 people) assumed to be unconscious, began to move his right arm under the blanket in a diligent effort to salute the Commander as is customary in the ceremonies. Despite his wounds, wrappings, tubes and pain, Josh fought the doctor who was trying to restrain his right arm and rendered the most beautiful salute any person in that room had ever seen. I cannot impart on you the level of emotion that poured through the intensive care unit that day.

"Grown men began to weep and we were speechless at a gesture that speaks volumes about Josh's courage and character. The picture which we believe belongs on every news channel and every newspaper , is attached. I have it hanging above my desk now and will remember it as the single greatest event I have witnessed in my ten years in the Army."

"Your fear is 100% dependent on you for it's survival." - Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly
