Tragically, a 22 year-old young man lies in a medically induced coma at Brooke Army Medical Center. His mother anxiously sits by his side, tears silently streaming down her face as she clings to his hand. He doesn’t know, but doctors are preparing to amputate his leg from the knee down.
He is not a combat veteran. He shouldn’t be in the hospital at all. He should be enjoying a summer afternoon with his friends.
