BERLIN ‚ÄĒ A CBS reporter injured in Iraq now has a Purple Heart at her bedside at a U.S. military hospital after a young American soldier gave her his citation in a sympathetic gesture, the network said.
Kimberly Dozier, 39, was seriously injured in a car bomb blast Monday while covering a story on Memorial Day in Iraq. Her camera crew, Britons Paul Douglas and James Brolan, were killed in the attack, along with a soldier, Capt. James A. Funkhouser Jr., and an Iraqi translator.
On Thursday, an American soldier who had been awarded the Purple Heart medal for combat injuries made a special visit to the hospital to see Dozier, CBS said.
‚ÄúA young American soldier came up to Kimberly‚Äôs brother Michael and told him that he had met Kimberly in Iraq two years ago after he had been wounded with shrapnel in his arm,‚ÄĚ CBS said without identifying the soldier.
‚ÄúThe soldier had his Purple Heart with him, and he told Michael that he‚Äôd like Kimberly to have it because, he said, she‚Äôs suffered as much as any soldier. That Purple Heart is now beside Kimberly‚Äôs bed.‚ÄĚ
