The One-Legged Veteran

I was waiting for my son Daniel at the VA clinic when an older man rolled by in a wheelchair. He had but one leg. I asked him where he served and he answered, simply, 'Iwo Jima."

I was overcome with sympathy and gratitude. "Thank you for what you did." I said.

It was the least I could do.
