SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. — An Arizona veteran who received a Purple Heart after being wounded in Iraq has given part of his award to U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Veteran gives his Purple Heart coin to Giffords

The Arizona congresswoman is recovering after being shot in the head outside a Tucson supermarket in January.

Al Lee says she was wounded in the line of duty, just like he was in 2003 when he served as an Army National Guard sergeant.

The 53-year-old Lee travelled to Giffords’ Tucson office this week. He presented the special coin to one of Giffords’ staff members, Pam Simon, who was among the 13 people wounded in the Jan. 8 rampage that left six dead.

Do our precious Soldiers get any better?soldier

One more reason, sweet Friends… to remember our beautiful men who were sent to dig trenches in France, shells exploding all over their young, precious heads.

Those who returned some 30 years later to fight in WWII, arriving on the shores of France yet again.

Those who went to Korea to stop the spread of Communism.

The ones who served in the torrid, steaming jungles of Vietnam.

Those still sweating in the deserts of Iraq, and climbing the treacherous mountains of Afghanistan.

    I Think that my Favorite Part of your Entire Post is the Last Sentence, that “In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.” That is so True.

    I wanted you to see my Fogel post and Ducky’s remarks on COMMENTS…imagine comparing stabbing infants to death with their parents to American drones accidentally killing Pakistanis? UGH. The Fogel story has gone largely untold in America and that is disgusting to me as I’m sure it is to you.

    This story you posted is very touching; Feels odd to compare what she does and what our soldiers do, but he knows FAR FAR better than I, and I surely respect his motivations and his generosity and heart… Another story I hadn’t heard; is our media WORKING? xx

    I have found in this life that it is the smallest gestures that bear the most power. The kindness and consideration shown by that soldier is far more powerful than the evil that caused Congresswoman Giffords injury. It is through these small measures that humanity is defined and examples set. That one action, small when compared to world events happening today, is the reason that America is rightfully proud of her troops.

    Many of those serving in our military has such tender hearts. The same can be said of many of our veterans.
