It has been a long road for Sergeant Anson Curry, the U.S. Army soldier who sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was injured in a grenade blast in Afghanistan last August. After receiving treatment in Afghanistan, Germany, Maryland and Palo Alto, Calif., the 26-year-old combat veteran’s trans-oceanic journey has now brought him to Escondido, Calif., where he received a very special welcome.
A crowd of flag-bearing members of the Patriot Guard greeted Sgt. Curry when he arrived via Angel MedFlight’ s Lear 60 medical jet at Brown Field Municipal Airport. After Angel MedFlight medical crews carefully loaded him into the waiting ambulance, the Patriot Guard motorcade gave his ambulance a military escort to a dedicated neuro-rehabilitation facility. Sergeant Curry, who was awarded the Purple Heart Medal for his injuries, will undergo physical, speech, psychological and occupational therapies.
