Some of you know our son was injured just before his last tour ended. We were honored to be with him this morning when he received his Purple Heart. It was a solemn occasion, thinking of those who gave their lives and what could have been. It was a happy occasion because he was there. We were able to see him receive this medal. We could hug him, laugh with him and just feel glad.
