Double arm transplant recipient, former U.S. Army Sgt. Brendan Marrocco poses for a portrait during occupational therapy at the Amputee Service Advanced Training Center, at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Marrocco was the first military service member to receive a double arm transplant and the second in the U.S. to receive an above elbow transplant (his right arm). Sgt. Marrocco lost both arms and legs by an IED in 2009 in Iraq. In 2012, he received a double arm transplant at Johns Hopkins.
