|"He didn't just choose to come -- he fought to come," Leonard said. "We bled and sweated with this guy in Iraq, and he wants to be with us more than anything. That's awesome."|
Great story. The explosion from an IED in Iraq cost him his leg from the knee on down. This Marine didn't want to leave the Corps and was determined to stay in. After months of long, grueling rehabilitation he is back with his buddies in Afghanistan serving in a war zone. He's working as an intelligence analyst instead of as an infantryman but says he won't hesitate to go outside the wire if the opportunity presents himself.
Semper Fi, Marine!
