Spc. Joshua O'Neil, 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry Regiment, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas sustained injuries while on mounted patrol in Kandahar, Afghanistan Feb. 11, 2013. Surgeons had to emplace a plate and three screws to repair his broken pelvis. "I'm good. I'm feeling a lot better," said O'Neil, who plans to recover as an outpatient at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. for the next six months. Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal presented the gunner with the Purple Heart, Feb. 26. "It's not something that you want to get," O'Neil said about the medal, "I'm just happy I'm alive to get it." (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Bernardo Fuller)
