I think his family is there but I suspect they could use some help. I live in Sierra Vista, (Ft. Huachuca) and it will be hard for me to get up there consistantly. If I get his permission I will also contact the VFW and AMVETS.

Bump..anyone out there...

I am in Georgia. Not much I can do from here other than moral support. 2400 has all of that I have.

Brothers, is anyone in Phx who could give moral support for 2400 when he gets his legs amputated?


Thanks for the thoughts three. I'm only having one cut off though.

I'm not sure who's going to do the surgery as the VA has sent me to 3 different ortho Docs. When I find out I'll let you know.

Only one. I just remember how my buddies were at the waiting room when I was having my eye put back in.

I'm in Phoenix.
My schedule is fairly busy and I am not in the NE valley, I am next to South Mountain.

Is there anything you need 2400?

I am a vet of OIF 1 (but wasn't wounded)

The Doc sent me back home on 2 more antibiotics, so I don't need anything yet. Thanks for the offer.

Here's an X-ray of the hardware that has to come out, you can't see the cadaver parts that need to come out, but there's a lot of them.

How did you get wounded? Mine was a hot machine gun and triple cookoff that came right back at me.

Sorry for the delay in updating guys. We had to move to a wheelchair friendly house, now I'm on dial up now so things are s l o w.

I've had 3 dates for surgery so far 8/12, 8/13 and now 8/15, so I'm not sure when they will do the surgery. The VA and Mayo keep going back and forth so all I'm doing is waiting for them to set a date and stick with it.

I'll do my best to keep this up to date.

Thanks for all the good wishes!
