Haitian Soccer Team Helping US Military Amputees

A Haitian soccer team of amputees who lost limbs during the January 12 earthquake are in the United States teaching US military amputees how to play soccer with their disabilities...

Is is a great story or what?

How often do you read stories about Haitians giving back?

Read this....

Jimmy Childers, a Marine, was in Haiti for five weeks after the earthquake. Shortly after, he deployed to Afghanistan and lost his leg in an explosion.

Now the same Haitians whose life he saved are here to help him have a little fun despite his disability.

"Actually having the Haitians out here is encouraging to all of us," Childers said to WUSA Chanel 9 in Washington DC.

How do you like that?
