In this local Washington DC Fox News segment, Sgt. Robert Bartlett discusses the injuries he sustained by an IED during a recognizance mission in Sadar City, Iraq.
Nearly killing him, the blast left him with severe facial trauma, burns and a closed head injury. After medical care and reconstruction at Walter Reed, he partnered with his ASPS Member Surgeon to reconstruct his mouth, cheek and eye.
Though he still requires further reconstruction, Sgt. Bartlett was recognized as an ASPS Patient of Courage for his work with groups like the Department of Veteran Affairs, Project Healing Waters and the Aledthia Foundation.
