Something to think about when you are working out every day.

That's fantastic - I just wonder how they'll do when they get much older. Seems like over time, being an amputee would take so much out of you, no matter how hard you train or how good the prostheses.

Thanks to everyone who has served this country in uniform and for the sacrifices in blood, sweat, tears, body parts, and lives by those and their families. I am really and truly grateful, not to mention amazed and impressed.

I'm such a wimp.

Wherever you go, there you are.
(In other words, no whining!)
