    Wounded Warrior, 24, returns home a HERO

    My son, Joshua Langston-White, is a 24 yr old recently retired Corp. of the U.S. Marine Corp. He is a Wounded Warrior after losing both his legs above the knee in Afghanistan in Aug of 2012. He has lived at Walter Reed NNMC since then and just now returned home for good. He is very different than others in that he has a perserverance and drive that amazes others constantly. He is an inspiration to our whole town, Crystal River, FL. and to those who have worked with him these last few years such as his physical therapist and his training coaches. He is currently training in rowing for the paralympics, he just interviewed with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers for a job, and he also wants to pursue monoskiing and ice climbing. Josh is a wonderful person and truly touches everyone he meets with his honesty and his humble attitude. He's very photogenic as well! A wonderful non-profit called Luke's Wings used him in their brochure.
