Picked DH up at the airport, had lunch, and went to Walter Reed to visit our friend. He's extremely fortunate to be alive. His companion has a severe brain injury and is in a coma.
The good news is that they will medivac him to the hospital at West Point next week - which is where he lives and he'll continue his recovery there. I can personally vouch for the orthopedists and physical therapists at West Point.
DD said visiting was a humbling experience. And she's right.
