You’ve Got to Pay the Price

by Veterans, Wisdom, Wisdom Podcasts0 comments

Army Staff Sargent Christopher Walker, age 28, a bomb technician, was wounded in Afghanistan.  He lost both arms and his left leg.  Now, Christopher’s days are filled with what his occupational therapist calls, “the skills of the job of living.”

Christopher is learning to walk on an artificial leg and use computerized prosthetic arms, devices that read his muscle impulses. “It’s like starting over. Like an infant, you’ve got to learn to use your hands, artificial hands, again.  The other day, I practiced using a knife and fork, slicing putty in a dish.”
