Lt. Col. Tim Karcher talked about fear last night, which this nation seems to have in so much abundance right now.
But for him, fear was more palpable over the last 15 months. He served three deployments to Iraq. Then, on June 28, 2009, a large explosion left Karcher, a battalion commander, without both his legs, fighting for his life and changing his future and his family’s forever. This husband and father of three girls went from a strapping 6’4”, 225 pounds to just over 100 pounds.
