Spc. Shawn Walker kisses his wife Amber as he holds his 3-week-old daughter Angela at the conclusion of a Jan. 9 awards ceremony honoring 14 Purple Heart recipients at the Fort Carson Army Post. A bullet pierced Walker's back and tore away his hip during an attack at a checkpoint in Fallujah in May. "They said I'd never walk again ... I proved them wrong," said Walker. With only the assistance of his cane, he stood and walked to receive his medal.
