Quadruple amputee: 'I consider myself lucky'

Marine Corps Cpl. Todd Nicely is one of three surviving quadruple amputees from both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In March 2010, Nicely lost both arms and legs when he stepped on an IED while crossing a bridge in the Helmand province in southern Afghanistan. He will spend at least a year rehabbing at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. (Michael Ruane/The Washington Post)
