It was an agonizing conversation for both father and son. But Hemi Mitic spoke lovingly to his wounded son, Master Cpl. Jody Mitic, late yesterday morning when a call was patched through to an airfield hospital in Kandahar.
"It was after he had an operation. They've amputated his feet," Mr. Mitic said in an interview from Toronto. "It's good news to the extent that he's alive, but he's got a tough time ahead without any feet."
