Sgt. Juanita Wilson was on patrol outside Baghdad when a roadside bomb exploded beneath her vehicle. She was trying to help her driver after the explosion when she felt something unusual. When she looked down, her hand was gone. Less than two years after her injury, she is demonstrating her commitment to her country once again. CBS News featured her on their American Hero series. Wilson has learned to function with her prosthetic left hand and is back at work at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington — the same hospital where she did her own recovery and rehabilitation. She has a Purple Heart for her bravery, and you might think she would want to stay home with her husband and their 7-year-old daughter. But Wilson has reenlisted in the Army Reserves and is expecting to return to Iraq. She told the interviewer: “Many may say that I’ve sacrificed quite a bit. I don’t really look at it that way. I don’t think I’ve sacrificed enough. I don’t think that you can sacrifice enough for the freedoms of America.” She said, “I’m a soldier. I love what I do. I love serving my country.”
