Story Narrated by Kristopher Privitar- "Sgt. Kenneth Conde was awarded his first Purple Heart when he was shot in the shoulder during a 6 hr. firefight that we were in while surrounded by insurgents in Rhamadi, Iraq. He was seen by the Corpsman on scene to patch his wound and then returned to the fight. He continued to patrol and fight with us for three more days until he could no longer feel his arm. He was awarded the Bronze Star medal with Valor device, and was supposed to receive it the day he was killed by the IED. I have continued my career based on the values that I learned from him, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him." July 1st marks the anniversary of his death when he was killed in action.
