Marine Sgt David Emery was critically wounded in Iraq on February 7,

2007 when a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at a secured checkpoint.

After being airlifted to Germany, he was eventually flown to

Bethesda Medical Center where he spent 3.5 months in the ICU due to

injuries and infections that required the amputation of both of his

legs. Arriving at Walter Reed in June 2007, David spent months learning

to sit up by himself and that August began learning to use his

prosthetic legs. David is determined to walk again and continues

receiving physical therapy to achieve that goal.

An outdoorsman at heart, David enjoys 4-wheeling, hunting, fishing

and shooting. He also is quite talented in the kitchen and enjoys

cooking for himself and others.

David's future goals include being able to walk again, continuing

his education, and enjoying his young daughter, Carlee's childhood.
