Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Richard A. Cody quote
Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Richard A. Cody at the first awards ceremony at the Center for the Intrepid, a new, state-of-the-art rehabilitation center for Soldiers at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Cody awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart Medals to Master Sgt. Daniel Robles, who lost both legs after an attack in Iraq.

I hate giving out Purple Hearts, but I'm also proud to give out Purple Hearts because I know the pain and suffering that not only the Soldier goes through, but also his family in helping him in coming back, never quitting and giving him back his life.
