Infantry amputee to remain in infantry

Infantry amputee to remain in infantry
HONOLULU, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- An infantry sergeant who lost a leg in Iraq has been granted his request to remain in the U.S. Army.
Brandon Wooldridge is now stationed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii. Less than two years after he was hit by insurgent fire near Kirkuk, he is training with other infantrymen, the Honolulu Advertiser reported.
While Wooldridge walks with a limp, many of his fellow soldiers do not realize that his lower right leg is a prosthetic.
