Wounded vet chooses to laugh

Wounded vet chooses to laugh

Dan Nevins elected to have his own right leg amputated in January. And that's not the most amazing thing about him.

Nevins is a golf addict, shooting in the mid-80s. That's not it, either.

Nevins is an Iraq war veteran. He lost his left leg when an improvised explosive device (IED) blew up his Humvee on Nov. 10, 2004. Nope.

What makes Dan Nevins so incredible is his laugh. It's pretty plain, as laughs go. A little goofy, but nothing out of the ordinary. Except that they happen a lot. And they are genuine.
