You might never hear me say this again so listen close. CNN has some excellent programming on the war this Memorial Day (I am just as suprised as you are). I watched Wounded Warriors today and was quite suprised at how much of the Green Zone Hospital I remembered. I was pretty much in shock with my right arm blown off and my left hand and arm sprayed with shrapnel when I was wounded on the eve of December 19, yet I was still aware enough to take in my surroundings.

You might see me on there as well talking about living at the Fisher House here at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. (Honestly, the Fisher House really is a great place to live!)
This memorial day please remember what veterans like myself have given so you can live the life that you do.
