Soldier badly wounded in Afghanistan wants to return to duty

Army Sgt. Robert Samuel knew that he'd lost much of his leg almost as soon as the improvised explosive device went off beneath his Stryker armored vehicle. Now with the help of a physical therapist, Samuel is working to strengthen his upper leg and hip so he can better use a prosthesis. His goal: to return to active duty.
