SSG Keith Walker

While on patrol in Baghdad, Iraq, SSG Walker's platoon came under enemy fire. SSG Walker's platoon was in charge of securing a Police Station and protecting a nearby Mosque. While under fire from enemy insurgents, SSG Walker and his platoon proceeded to MEDEVAC and treat enemy and civilian casualties. While treating an unarmed civilian for bullet wounds, SSG Walker was struck by an exploding grenade that was thrown from an insurgent on the nearby rooftop. SSG Walker sustained life threatening injuries to his arms, legs and hand. While trying to get to safety from his injuries, SSG Walker returned fire, protecting not only himself but fellow soldiers and civilians. All enemy insurgents were either eliminated or captured following these events. For his bravery and the injuries he sustained, SSG Walker was awarded the Purple Heart.
