Picture of Injured Army Ranger Saluting From His Hospital Bed Goes Viral

If a picture can say a thousand words, this one might say a million. A picture of an Army Ranger that was injured in Afghanistan is seen saluting after he received a Purple Heart medal while still in a hospital bed

His bandaged right arm is raised in what we now know is a salute.
 

His face is mostly obscured, but the photo captures details like the color of the patient’s hair, the shadow of what appears to be a large bruise on his left cheek and a Purple Heart medal pinned to the quilt.
 

The patient is Cpl. Joshua Hargis. His wife, Taylor, calls him Josh. The photo has been shared thousands of times since Taylor posted it to her Facebook page nearly a week after he was injured during a military operation in Afghanistan that killed four troops and injured 14.
