Cpl. Hargis was wounded after an Afghan woman in Kandahar Province detonated a suicide vest bomb which set off 13 other explosive devices. The blasts killed 4 members of Hargis’ 3rd Army Ranger Battalion and wounded 12 other American soldiers.
Hargis wounds are severe and he was thought to be unconscious when his commanding officer entered into the hospital room to present Hargis with the Purple Heart for the wounds he suffered earlier that day.
No one expected any response from Hargis when he suddenly saluted.
