Wounded Soldiers At Press Conference


Caught the press conference with the U.S. wounded in Germany this morning.
Heartwarming stuff. Prize lines: “I saw that my foot was gone… I put
that out of my mind.” “They all reacted just the way they do in training…
the training took over.” (That’s for anyone who wonders why soldiers
train so hard.) My prize, however, goes to Staff Sgt. Jaime Villafane for
this gem: “Getting shot at was no big thing. It was getting shot that
sucked.” God bless and keep them all.
