It was a beautiful summer, but it went by too fast, like they always do.
On June 15, we got word that our cousin, a Marine, was injured in Afghanistan. He lost both legs in an IED explosion.
In other words, he defeated the enemy that was trying to kill him.
He's kind of a badass.
Here he is--Sgt. Collin Raaz from Iowa City, Iowa on November 1, taking his first steps with his new legs. Click below the photo on the link to watch the video and read more about Collin.
Collin's philosophy: "I would say it is physically difficult enough, and I don't need to add to it by creating mental or emotional problems on top of that."
Now get out there and kick some ass today, people.
