He sure did. He sacrificed quite a bit.

Looks like he meant it.
The easy way is always mined.
Thanks for posting this
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
I'll pray that he has a speedy rehab ,and with an outlook like that I'm sure he will be able to succeed as a wounded warrior in fulfilling his dreams

God bless him. I hope he can go on to have a wonderful life. He must have a good family to raise a young man like that. Nineteen, he's not even old enough to order a beer but he's out there fighting for the country. Amazing maturity for someone so young.
Glad to hear that he's doing well.
Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.- Mark Twain
The word "Hero" has real meaning here. God Bless Soldier!
We should intern love those that have sacrificed for us. Prayer said.
Anyone have an update to this? Story is over a year old. Thanks
