"Have you seen my friend Taylor walk?"

Have you seen my friend Taylor walk? is the title of an absolute must-read blog post about PO2 Taylor Morris by his friend and photographer Tim Dodd. Taylor, an EOD Tech, sustained wounds resulting in the amputation of both arms and legs while on patrol in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan in May of this year.

Tim recounts the time spent with his friend during a recent visit to Bethesda National Military Medical Center in Maryland - the hospital's rehab center, sightseeing in DC, and a spontaneous road trip to Taylor and girlfriend Danielle's home in Virginia Beach.

I don't even want to excerpt any of it because you really need to see the whole thing. But I'll leave you with one more of Tim's photos.

Taylor's website can be found here, and he also has a support page on Facebook.
