A Veteran's Miraculous Recovery

Justin Constantine
Justin Constantine

Only six weeks after Justin Constantine left his job as a lawyer and arrived in Iraq, the Marine reservist was shot in the face. It was a sniper attack. Stopping to inspect an Iraqi police station that had been shot out the night before, he cautiously exited a vehicle and a bullet entered behind his left ear, and exited through his mouth, ripping through his face and jaws. He should have died, except Navy Corpsman George Grant rushed over and gave Constantine an emergency tracheotomy – right in the midst of the sniper fire.
