    Front page article on an amputee - Sunday Columbus Dispatch.

    Soldier? no.

    Accident victim? no.

    She was a fifty something who lost a leg due to cardiovascular disease.  They focussed on her courage, mentioned her unhealthy lifestyle a little.  It was a warm'n;fuzzy human interest story but with Memorial Day(Golf! Tournament!) coming up, it would have been apropos to do a story on, say, all of Ohio's returning vets who have been discharged for medical reasons.

    We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
