The Photos posted here are photos from my short deployment to Djibouti, Africa. The deployment was cut short for me thanks to a motor vehicle accident while returning home from a dinner break on the town. The taxi I was taking to the US base was crushed and split in half after it rolled for a way down the road. I have no real memories of the accident and was in a medically induced coma for over a month. Within that time I was treated at the French hospital in Djibouti. I was later told that if the care I was given in that hospital had not been so amazing, that I would be dead already. From the French Hospital I was transferred to the US Army's Landstuhl hospital in Western Germany. Many soldiers from my unit were there to greet me when I arrived off of the aircraft. My Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, and Sister in Law were also present to give me moral support during one of the physically toughest times of my life. I would like to thank them all for their support. From there I was sent to the Walter Reed Medical Facility in Washington DC. This is where I first started to regain some conciousness and began to realize that there was something severely wrong with me. I was in a very strange place (i knew it was a hospital) but I had no idea where in the world I could be. All of my attendants were speaking English, and I did catch a glimpse of my mother standing by. I knew whatever happened had to be severe at the very lease, but my mind was still full of all of the medications I had to take. So obviously I was not able to piece this puzzle together. I will be posting some pictures from the two months before the injury, as well as some pictures taken from me in a very serious condition from which I almost died. Please check out the photos, and I will try to add more to my story as time goes on.
