COPY-Wounded Wilmington Soldier is Walking Again

NOVEMBER 2, 2005 -- One year after an accident in Iraq, a Wilmington soldier is walking again. Joey Bozik is now trying to walk on what his family affectionately calls "shorties."

His mother sent WECT photos from a surprise visit to Washington where Sgt. Bozik is recovering.

Bozik lost both legs and an arm in a Humvee bombing outside Baghdad.

He's received a purple heart and has been featured in Time magazine and on MTV.
