Soldier gives his Purple Heart to girl

Order of the purple heart

A soldier injured in Iraq gave his Purple Heart to a 13-year-old girl who won a contest for writing letters to U.S. troops.

"It's important what these children do for us in sending these letters," said Staff Sgt. Phillip Trackey. "The letters mean so much to us. So I thought this was a big way of giving something back to them."

The Syracuse, N.Y., student replied: "I'm touched. I'm speechless." Read the rest of the story at World Net Daily: Soldier gives his Purple Heart
