There's nothing I could write today that would come close to this inspiring story.

(Feb. 15, 2005)

Debby Schick arrived here at Brooke Army Medical Center sad and afraid of what lay ahead. Her son, Marine Cpl. Jacob Schick, had been medevaced here after his Humvee hit an anti-tank mine in Iraq, severing his right leg just below the knee.

With a long recuperation ahead for him, Debby left her Dallas home and put her career as an interior decorator on hold to be by her son's side as he began the long process of treatments and therapy.

What she didn't expect was that she'd get the opportunity to put her professional skills to use to make life just a little bitter nicer for her son and other service members being treated here for wounds received in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Another great story about our Marines and the parents who support them. Read it all here.
