Rock group Puddle Of Mudd have been humbled by one of their bravest fans after he handed them his medal of honour when they visited him in hospital.

The hardcore band were left in tears when they met a soldier who had his left arm and part of his face blown off in a bomb attack in Iraq.

The brave soldier was recuperating in Germany and was thrilled when his favourite group visited him in hospital after playing two shows for troops there earlier this month (SEP04).

The blind soldier handed the his Bronze Star honour to the group during a meet-and-greet in Friedberg.

Drummer GREG UPCHURCH says, "I just cried."
