This is a post dealing with the DNC 2012. I am simply speaking of a specific speaker, Mrs. Tammy Duckworth. For those who do not know her story, MUST understand that I am not coming from a Democratic point of view, but what she has been through inspires me as an American, and as a female who once considered the military. This extremely strong lady has been through a lot. Shes one of the first Army women to fly combat mission in Iraq in 2004. When her blackhawk started taking fire, a rocket propelled grenade hit her helicopter, exploding in her lap, and ripping off one leg, crushing the other and also taking a part of her arm off. She is successful when it comes to supporting the VA, and keeping in touch with the younger veterans through online communications. I encourage all to read her about her story, and even better yet, read her speech. Regardless of your political standpoint, PLEASE READ THIS INSPIRATIONAL STORY THAT MADE ME TEAR UP!
