New pics show @GenDunford presenting Purple Hearts to #Marines in Iraq where they were hurt

U.S. Marine Cpl. William Crisostomosfelipe, 22, a field artillery cannon crewman with Battery E, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, and a native of Orange, California, receives the Purple Heart during a ceremony at Kara Soar Base, Makhmur, Iraq, April 22, 2016. Crisostomosfelipe, along with three other Marines, was awarded his Purple Heart by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford at the very site he was wounded. “I don’t know anybody else that’s actually received a Purple Heart at the point of injury,” said Dunford. “When you go back home it’ll be hard to explain, hard to tell people exactly the impact you are having, but I hope you recognize that’s the absolute truth, and you are making a difference out here and, we recognize and appreciate what you’re doing.” (U.S. Army Photo by Staff Sgt.
