Well, I started out wanting to tell you to go check out the posting by Kat at Yikes!
It's a fantastic post, and also fills you in a little on what the LIVING LEGENDS TEAM does at Soldiers Angels .
And then,as so often happens when I think I have an idea planned out for a blog post (or, actually, when I think I have an idea for almost anything,lol,just ask my family) I GOT SIDETRACKED.
I happened to see this post on My Rambling Mind about the Vice President reenlisting a soldier who is an amputee. And a commenter asked "Shouldn't this soldier have been medically discharged?"
And so that sent me to, of course,GOOGLE:) because I thought I had seen stories previously of amputee soldiers who were still active duty.
Some of the results of my search led me to this 2004 article
