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

I wish him the very best success in whatever he chooses to do!
A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. Thatís control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. Thatís abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions. -- Carlos Castaneda

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.
