Marine Reenlists

So you're probably wondering why I'm blogging about a Marine reenlisting. After all it's something that happens everyday.   But this Marine, Cpl Matthew Bradford, is special.  He was blinded and lost both legs in 2007 when a roadside bomb exploded right under him.  But being blind and not having legs does not define him.  He's a Marine.  He's done what's necessary to learn to walk on prosthetics and he's done what's necessary to learn to navigate the world he can no longer see.  He's a Marine, and because he's reenlisted for another "hitch," Cpl Bradford is a uniformed Marine.  According to the FOXNews story, he'll be assigned to the Center for the Intrepid, helping other injured Marines to learn how to deal with the anger, depression, and other issues that can come with severe injury.  Good!  It seems to me that if anyone can help other injured warriors, it's this Marine.  As he says, "I'm paving the road for the rest of them who want to stay in but think they can't, I'm ready to get back to work."

What a Marine!
