When Anthony Ameen was injured in Afghanistan in 2008, his world was turned upside down.

Ameen served from 2002 to 2010 as a hospital corpsman in the U.S. Navy. In 2008, he was in Afghanistan with the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment of the 1st Marine Division. While running to save one of his men during a counterattack, he stepped on an improvised explosive device and ended up losing the lower half of his left leg.
