His name is Rico Roman. His rank in the US Army is Staff Sgt. Today he can be an inspiration and hero to all.
Staff Sgt. Roman served three tours of duty in Iraq and sacrificed much for our country. Including his body, but not his soul. Or ambition.
This war hero will continue to serve, this time when he heads to South Korea as a member of Team USA for the Paralympics as a hockey player.
Take a moment and watch his story from Wednesday's "NBC Nightly News". After, show your kids, so they see that real heroes aren't multi-millionaire athletes, rock stars, rappers or Kardashians. They are simple people who love our country so much they give a leg for us, but never give up their heart....
