Update on 1st Sgt Kasal

1st Sgt Kasal is finally ready for bone graft surgery. The process of "lengthening" his leg is completed and he will have the surgery early this week. He hopes this will be the last surgery he undergoes, as he has already had sixteen.

While at the hospital on Friday he was greeted by one of his Staff Sargents (I forgot his name....and will edit this post as soon as possible) who also had a bad leg injury. This Ssgt lost more than twice as much leg bone as did the 1st Sgt, but is healing well and can already drive (the injury is to his left leg).

As soon as I can figure out how to post photos I will post one of the two of them standing there telling war stories (about their time in the hospitals)
