Anthony Ameen admits he used to be a little wild in high school. Now 30, with eight years of military service and two tours overseas on his resume, those days have been left behind.
The Ahwatukee Foothills native now focuses on helping his fellow veterans. Ameen was seriously injured in Afghanistan by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) and lost the bottom half of his right leg. He stepped on one as he was running to the aid of a wounded soldier.
