They left limbs on the battlefield, and now they’re going back

Understatement of the day:

“Top Pentagon officials were at first reluctant. But after hearing personal pleas from wounded vets—and seeing the soldiers’ astonishing recoveries firsthand—they reconsidered. The first Marine amputee found fit for duty has just returned from seven months in Iraq. “We realize that a soldier’s strong mental and emotional outlook can more than compensate for a changed body,” says Lt. Gen. Franklin Hagenbeck, the Army’s deputy chief of staff for personnel.
