Fort Carson Spc. Robert Hunt will receive the purple heart in a ceremony Friday. Hunt, a medic, was injured in Iraq when his vehicle was hit by an armor-piercing, rocket-propelled grenade. Although he was wounded, Spc. Hunt provided aid to the injured crew.
Brig. Gen. Gary Cheek, commander of the Warrior Transition Command, will officiate at the ceremony.
Hunt now works as an emergency room medic at Fort Carson.
