Veterans group presents new truck to soldier

(WBBH)  Sergeant Joshua Hargis and his wife Taylor got the first look inside their brand new truck Monday.

“It’s an amazing truck,” Joshua said. “I don’t know if you saw inside, but it’s pretty nice. It really is.”

Joshua is right. This is any old truck, but this also isn’t any old couple.

“I get it [my strength] from my wife. I wouldn’t have much if I didn’t have her,” he said.

In fact, it’s because of Joshua’s wife that we even know him in the first place. You may remember the photo she posted online, which quickly went viral. It shows Joshua, a U.S. Army Ranger, bravely saluting his commanding officer from his hospital bed in Afghanistan last October. He had just lost both of his legs to an IED. At the time, no one even knew he was conscious.
