    I am always amazed at the fortitude that medics display in the field. Franklin is one of a great cadre of men.

    I heard today that the doctors in Landstuhl may have to amputate the lower part of his other leg as well. A damn shame. It looks like the fellas are all gonna make it though. Glyn Berry wasn't so lucky.
