I have read about him in a MOH book. The man was unreal and a true hero! I also recall reading that earlier in his career he suffered broken vertebrae in his back and could not walk. He was in the hospital with other men who could not walk due to lost limbs etc. I guess at night he would throw himself out of bed to try to teach himself to walk again...and he did! He also came from an extremely humble background.

It's really incredible what the human body is capable of.
