FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Lt. Gen. Perry Wiggins introduces Sgt. Shawn Murphy, the guest of honor, just prior to a Purple Heart presentation ceremony Oct. 3 at Brooke Army Medical Center. "The humblest of Soldiers will say they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Wiggins, about recipients of the highly respected medal. "But, you are part of something bigger than yourself now." Murphy is a combat engineer who was presented the medal after being wounded while serving in Afghanistan with the 62nd Engineer Company, 4th Engineer Battalion, and attached to the 307th Eng. Bn., under the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, out of Germany. Wiggins is the commanding general for U.S. Army North (Fifth Army) and senior commander for Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis.
