Posted: Updated:

His patriotism was inspiring and went viral across the nation and abroad. And today, there is very good news.

Josh Hargis, the Purple Heart veteran, is expecting his first child with his wife. He is also walking on prosthetics.

Hargis was wounded in early October, 2013 during an attack in Afghanistan. While on his hospital bed, everyone thought he was unconscious, but he raised his hand when his commanding officer can in. The photo was captured, and the photo took off from there, including on FOX 29, where many people wrote in to send Hargis their prayers.

Family and friends are currently trying to raise money for the growing family.
