Notes:
In September 2006, Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson was travelling through Helmand Province when his armoured Land Rover hit a mine. He suffered 37 injuries in all, including losing both legs, breaking his pelvis and spine, and suffering brain damage. For this he has become known as the most injured soldier to survive the Afghanistan/Iraq conflicts. After the explosion, doctors didn't think Ben would survive - then they didn't think he'd wake up, or talk again, or walk again. Ben confounded them all. More than that, the disabilities he survived with taught him how many other people are suffering too, many who didn't get the 22 years' quality of life that he had. This is the story of a young man in his prime who seemingly lost everything fighting for his country - only to prove that strength of spirit and mind can overcome even the greatest of hurdles.
