Warriors like him show what perseverance and "never quit" truly mean!

I wish him the very best success in whatever he chooses to do!

Great respect for MSgt Del Toro return to active duty accomplishment.

However the assertion of "Now, the first airman to return to duty after being deemed 100% disabled, is incorrect by several decades. He might be the third or the fourth as the first I'm aware of ended up with half his skull being Titanium after being injured in an exploding B-52 on the flightline back during the SEA conflicts.
