Human Events:

The Best Among Us  Captain Skelton returns to the battlefield.

by John Hayward

The news is often filled with the deeds of low men. Let me tell you about a great one.

Army Captain D. J. Skelton is back on the battlefield in Afghanistan, after recovering from wounds he suffered in Iraq. A lot of wounded soldiers have recovered and returned to service, a company of determined heroes whose numbers inspire awe and reverence.

Captain Skelton is a leader in that great company. The wounds he suffered in Iraq came during the battle of Fallujah, during Operation Phantom Fury in 2004. A piece of shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade went through his mouth and destroyed his left eye. He’s been through over sixty surgeries. He has only partial use of his left arm and right leg, and needs a special prosthesis to eat or drink. A profile in The Daily says “the Army could not identify anyone who suffered worse wounds than Skelton and has returned to combat command.”
