The bomb disposal expert who has ALWAYS kept a smile on his face - even after he lost limbs in an Afghan IED blast US Marine Gunnery Sergeant Brian Meyer was deployed as a bomb technician in Afghanistan in 2011 when the device he was defusing exploded prematurely. The then 29-year-old Marine was ripped apart by the blast. He lost his right leg above the knee, his right hand above the wrist and three fingers of his left hand. While still receiving treatment on the battlefield, Sgt Meyer, fearful of the impact his injuries would have on his squad, ordered Eric Lunson to take his photograph. Forcing a smile through the pain, Sgt Meyer, raised what use to be his arm and would have earlier been a thumbs' up as the shutter clicked. The photograph, Sgt Meyer hoped, would provide inspiration for his men as he began his own battle with recovery. Since the War on Terror and the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, almost 2,000 US troops have lost one or more limbs as a result of combat injuries. Now, the Naval Health Research Center has embarked on a six-year study, to help wounded warriors rebuild their lives. So far, 1,500 personnel have signed up to the Wounded Warrior Recovery Project, however, the Navy wants to increase that figure to 10,000. In addition to the amputees, a further 50,000 people have suffered serious combat injuries while deployed in either Iraq or Afghanistan. A staggering 16,000 of them would not have survived in an earlier conflict.
