Description:

Carpenter’s face was virtually blown off and his right arm shattered by a grenade blast and after no less than 30 surgeries in nine weeks, he wants to tell his story. We don’t want to miss this opportunity.
This drawing depicts Lance Corporal Carpenter relaxing on his hospital room’s La-Z Boy lounger. His still-boyish face is a crazy quilt of scars. Kyle, as he prefers to be called, is resting his heavily bandaged right arm on a pillow across his lap. Both upper thighs are bandaged, and his right eye is a milky ghost of its former self. http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/17/still-in-the-fight-scars/
