Sgt. Kenny Lyon
Marine Sgt Kenny Lyon was on his second deployment to Iraq when his unit came under a mortar attack near Fallujah in May 2006. He was repairing a disabled Light Armor Vehicle when a mortar round landed 9 feet behind him. Falling unconscious just as he arrived at the hospital at Camp Fallujah, he received 50 units of blood through direct transfusion, person to person. He awoke two weeks later at Bethesda Naval Medical Center with an amputated left leg above the knee, irreversible nerve damage to his left arm and hand, and a shattered jaw. Sgt Lyon spent two years in the hospital and continues to receive outpatient services and therapies. Homes for our Troops will be building him a specially modified house in the Fredericksburg area.
