Army sniper, wounded warrior thanks country star with his own Purple Heart

When country music star Brantley Gilbert decided to put his music to work for wounded veterans, he couldn’t have expected the kind of reward he was going to receive.

But Army Staff Sgt. Justin Patterson decided to thank Gilbert for his work on behalf of veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome by giving the entertainer the first of the Purple Hearts he earned during five tours of duty in Iraq.

In a moving segment on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, he explained why.

(And find out what Gilbert gave him in return. It will bring a smile.)
