A freshly-minted Air Force pilot has completed his training with only one leg. First Lt. Ryan McGuire is the first-ever in Air Force history to do so. “I hope this shows people to never give up on their dream,” he says. “You have to keep your goals in mind and have faith in yourself.” McGuire lost his lower right leg in a boating accident over the 2009 Labor Day weekend. Just a reminder to all Battleland readers out there: be careful over the long Memorial Day weekend.
