In May of 2006, in Ramadi, Iraq, a sniper hit MSGT Gibson in the leg, essentially destroying his knee. The result was that his leg had to be amputated before being sent back to the states for treatment.
After his recovery from his injury, MSGT Gibson was asked by GEN Mattis if there was anything that he do for him. Gibson asked to go back to Iraq and GEN Mattis complied. He was the first above the knee amputee to serve in combat.
President Bush said this, "When Americans like Spanky Gibson serve on our side, the enemy in Iraq doesn't got a chance."
While I agree with the President, I think what MSGT Gibson did was lead and inspire Marines...Always Faithful.
