Wounded Marine Gets Customized Home

Marine Sergeant Robert Bruce was on his fourth deployment when he lost both of his legs and suffered multiple shrapnel wounds when he stepped on an IED in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan on March 9, 2011. While providing security for the squad's minesweeper, the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines were making their way up a hillside, clearing IED's so that the area could be used for future operations, when the Marine ahead of Sgt Bruce triggered an IED and lay injured.
