this is David Sterling,from Kansas and I first met him when he was on his way to Iraq about 2004, and then he was in an ambush in his humvee and lost his hand ,and was able to still save his Lt. life to get out of there. David has had a rough go of it since coming home . but now is hopefully happier and still living in Kansas, married with his stepson in the Marines in Hawaii. so David was really one of our first soldiers. certainly our first wounded hero. I still try to keep in touch with him. as I told him once you are "adopted" by ASWL that is forever.
