Skip to comments.The story of Taylor Morris (A true Hero)
Posted on 05/31/2012 12:27:12 PM PDT by gjones77
Less than one month ago near the Kandahar province in Afghanistan, Taylor was doing his job, right out in front.
Leading a team of Army Special forces to a classified location, Taylor stepped on an IED. It exploded underneath him and blew off all four of his limbs. Taylor recalled the moment to me over the phone,
"As soon as I stepped on it, I knew. There was a moment, then I heard the blast. I felt the heat. I knew I had lost my legs. As I summersaulted through the air, I watched my legs fly off."
Taylor landed back in the blast crater. This is where the story of Taylor's bravery goes next-level.
After the explosion, Taylor didn't lose consciousness, he didn't go into shock. His thoughts immediately crystalized. Even though Taylor was bleeding to death, he called to the oncoming medics NOT to come get him, putting their safety in front of his own life.
