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.
