SSG Heath Calhoun
SSG Heath Calhoun served in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division. He was severely injured when a rocket-propelled grenade hit his Humvee on November 7, 2003, resulting in the amputation of both his legs above the knee. "I was at the rear corner of the Humvee when the grenade hit the tail light right beside my right leg and exploded," he said. "I was lying on my side. I could see my legs were really messed up." Heath yelled to the driver of the vehicle to call the incident in to headquarters. "I laid my head back down and thats all I remember."
