When it comes to working with veterans who have lost limbs in combat, the military has made tremendous strides in recent years.

"We use state-of-the-art prosthetics," said Lyn Kukral, a spokeswoman for Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Walter Reed is one of two military hospitals in the nation that serve as amputee centers for those being fitted with and trained in the use of prosthetics.

The other amputee center is Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
