SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Where some see scarred stumps and horrific wounds, Peter Harsch sees carbon-fiber feet, hydraulic legs and bionic knees.
Harsch became the Navy Medical Center San Diego's first full-time prosthetist last fall as part of the military's push to treat troops who have lost arms and legs in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I'm suffering from a bad case of hysterical laughter.
"FIRST FULL-TIME PROSTHETIST"?
Expanding an amputee center? Oh my holy whatever.
Is this what the administration is talking about when they talk about "creating jobs"?
Every day for a tarted up war, men and women that we entrust our liberties and lives to die and are maimed. My friends and relatives, and I'm sure yours as well.
Will I be thankful that the amputee center has expanded when my nephew ends up there?
Should you be happy that as your grandchild returns to the US there is a FULL-TIME PROSTHETIST available to slag on a bionic leg and elbow for the girl?
Cowardly weak tin soldiers sending the real iron soldiers to die.
