It was a simple salute, but so powerful and dignified that it brought grown men to tears. Sgt Josh Hargis was badly injured by an IED in 2013. His salute was rendered at a military hospital in Afghanistan after being presented with a Purple Heart. There are three links that follow – each describes a part of his journey since then. Click on them in sequence (the first is a short article with some background; the last two are videos).
