"The Taliban can't faze me, they can try, but here I come rising from the ashes of their little bomb, three out of four limbs, less than I had and still as strong as ever. Bring it," said Army Sgt. Monte Bernardo.

"I started physical therapy two and a half weeks after the incident in Afghanistan," he said in a telephone interview. "The nurses and doctors tell me nobody has healed this fast in the history of the hospital."
