"Whenever anyone has told me I couldn't do something, I shut them down. And I did it."
- SPC Brendan Marrocco
On Easter Sunday, US Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco lost all four limbs in combat in Iraq. Glenn Osten Anderson of the Guardian UK visits Marrocco at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre as he recovers from his injuries and learns to use his prosthetic arms and legs.
I'd heard about Brendan's determination and spirit from another patient at Walter Reed, but it's great to meet the man behind the story.
