from Rachel S. Karas of the Frederick News-Post,
Mark Little is many things: a husband, a volunteer and a double amputee, an Army veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan who lost his legs to a roadside bomb in 2007.
But when he laces up his skates, he's No. 11 on the USA Warriors.
“Walking is harder than skating. I put on skates and I can glide. It's liberating," Little said. "You immediately feel equal.”...
Little, 30, called it a fantastic way to rehabilitate.
Hockey requires discipline and teamwork — qualities that veterans value, he said.
"You're back with people you'd trust with your life,” Little said. “You know you can trust them with the puck, you can trust them with the pass.”
On the ice, the men said it's as if injuries don't exist.
