Just back from a tour of Arlington Nat. Cemetery, visiting my FIL's grave (and a bunch of the rest of the family).
The guy at WR had lost both legs, one was already replaced with a c-leg and the other wasn't there. The hole in the back of his head was covered with a bandage, about 4x6 inches, and he was in a wheelchair. He and his friend were in the Subway sandwich shop at the PX, and both were smiling.
I think I'd have a hard time smiling if I were so wounded.
