During World War II, there were several soldiers huddled in a foxhole and a grenade was thrown in by the enemy. One of the soldiers covered the grenade with his body just before it exploded. He received the serious wounds to his own body and saved the life of his buddies. His legs had to be amputated. After the surgery the doctor apologized for having to amputate his legs. The soldier said to the doctor, “Doctor, you did not take them, I gave them.”
