I am Alex's mother. This was one of the most important days of my life, to see my son stand up and walk for the second time in his life. None of it would have been possible without the help, prayers, kindnesses of our family, friends and the wonderful people of BAMC and the Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio, TX. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And thanks to PAW for telling his amazing story.
