Justin Callahan doesn't remember much about the landmine explosion that crippled him. He recalls only the echo of a large blast, and a shower of dirt raining down on top of him.

The young soldier, then a 22-year-old sergeant in the Army's 10th Mountain Division, was on a routine patrol in Afghanistan. It was a January morning in 2004. Callahan was in charge of an eight-man squad, conducting area clearance and counter mine operations, walking along a dirt road, about 10 yards behind a Humvee.
