Army sniper, wounded warrior thanks country star with his own Purple Heart

When country music star Brantley Gilbert decided to put his music to work for wounded veterans, he couldn’t have expected the kind of reward he was going to receive.

In a moving segment on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, he explained why.

(And find out what Gilbert gave him in return. It will bring a smile.)
