How Americans treat their wounded warriors

Specialist Christopher Garrett was a combat engineer with the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division when he was deployed to Afghanistan, but a one-night mission changed everything.
Independent Journal Review spoke to his wife, Brittany, who explained what happened:
“He was shot through the lower abdomen, and the bullet exited his right butt cheek. He took the bullet while on a night mission in Afghanistan.”
After being treated for his injuries, he received a medical retirement and was classified as 100% disabled. Despite his disability and the pain it caused him, Brittany said that- once or twice a week – Christopher still went out and mowed their lawn, struggling with the push mower.
And then a complete stranger changed their lives.


  1. Not Americans! CW one American. I have been 100% disabled vet for 22 years and I can't get anybody to help me do a damned thing. That guy is lucky. I hope his local VA treats him half that good.

  2. Va compensation for a 100% Veteran married with a child is $3187.00 dollars per month tax free! A self propelled or riding lawn mower can be bought for less than a $1000 dollars. Was it money or stupid macho pride that made him try and do it with a push mower?

  3. There are plenty of good Americans, they are out there doing good things for those less fortunate than themselves. You just never hear much about them because they are busy doing without thought of praise or compensation. They are the back bone of this country. Pray for them.
