BERLIN â€” 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.
â€śA young American soldier came up to Kimberlyâ€™s 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,â€ť CBS said without identifying the soldier.
â€śThe soldier had his Purple Heart with him, and he told Michael that heâ€™d like Kimberly to have it because, he said, sheâ€™s suffered as much as any soldier. That Purple Heart is now beside Kimberlyâ€™s bed.â€ť
