Answers don't come easy for war amputee

TUPPER LAKE - The children of L.P. Quinn Elementary School were shy about asking Army Spc. Joshua Jones about his time in Iraq.
But then Jones lifted his pants leg to reveal a new prosthetic leg, prompting a boy to blurt out, "Did you get your leg back?"
Jones has had some difficult questions of his own since returning from the war zone, and he continues to search for answers. On June 9, an improvised explosive device tore into the Humvee he was in, severely injuring the Tupper Lake native. His right leg was amputated below the knee and his maimed left leg was operated on several times at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
