Easter Sunday overseas, 22 year old Brendan Marrocco (left) became the first veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to lose both legs and arms and survive to tell the tale. Hit with a roadside bomb that took his limbs and severed a carotid artery in his neck, his physical survival has been a miracle. It is his mental recovery that has left those who know him most impressed. Specialist Marrocco never succumbed to “why me” pity and instead remained upbeat and pushed himself every day to get as much back of his life as possible. Brendan received a double arm transplant. We have communicated with Brendan and his dad, Alex Marrocco, and are encouraging him to complete his education.

After high school, Taylor Morris from Cedar Falls, Iowa, pursued a career with the Navy. He ended up becoming a member of an elite class of soldiers known as the EOD. The Explosive Ordinance Disposal teams are the first men on the battle field. They clear paths of explosives for other soldiers, literally putting their lives on the line for their fellow men. Taylor was deployed to Afghanistan.
In combat overseas, Taylor stepped on an IED. The damage Taylor sustained was extremely severe. The explosion blew off his legs, his left arm and his right hand. After receiving immediate medical attention in Afghanistan, he transferred to a hospital in Germany, and May 6th was taken to Walter Reed Medical Academy in Washington DC to begin the long rehabilitation process. Help The Vets has contacted Taylor and his wife Danielle (see above their thank you card) supported his progress financially, and has encouraged him to continue with his education.
