I'm humbled just reading there are others like him.

I can guarantee this young man doesn't vote democrat.

He is amazing--such grit and determination and heart. :) If they hadn't mentioned he was from Georgia, I would have sworn he was a Texan. :biggrin-1:

I like the way he thinks:

Before heading to Afghanistan, Auge said Luckett had an as yet untried "master plan" to upset the insurgents.

Troops would have Luckett step on a mine and blow his fake leg off. He'd then look up at the trigger man while whipping a replacement leg over his shoulder and slipping it on.

"Then he would flip them off," Auge said, "and keep on walking."

:laugh:

What an inspirational guy.
As his plane touched down at Andrew's Air Force Base, he made a determined decision. He was going to rejoin the 101st Airborne Division any way he could.

This, on the way to the hospital after being severely wounded.

I pray that God watches over them all and brings them home safely.
I also loved what Bonnie wrote about Texas :-)
