Valdosta - Purple hearts were presented to four airmen at Moody who were injured by two roadside bombs.

Colonel John Decknick presented Staff Sgt. Chris Forsythe and Airman First Class Sean Harrington with the combat medals.

They were injured by a roadside bomb back in July in Iraq.

Senior Airman Tyler Ginavan was also presented with a purple heart.

He was injured by a roadside bomb attack on October 29th.

"On our last night of work we got hit by an EFP and went to the hospital and all that, we had a couple of injuries but we made it out alive," Ginavan says.

Staff Sgt Rick Adams was also injured in that attack and is currently recovering from his injuries at Fort Gordon.

These members of the 822nd Security Forces just returned from a six month deployment to Iraq Wednesday.
