Amputee says leg loss a small sacrifice

Amputee says leg loss a small sacrifice

Long before he arrived in Iraq, Luke Cassidy gave his heart and soul to his country as a Marine and police officer.
Surrendering part of his left leg later didn't seem like much of a sacrifice, the Plum man said.
Nine days after arriving in Al Ramadi in 2004, an improvised explosive device detonated beneath the vehicle Cassidy was driving. The explosion broke his legs, shattered his heels and tore off the big toe of his right foot. An insurgent also shot him in the right calf, he said.
