Corporal Todd Simpson Love is a brave marine in the 1st Recon Battalion, B Co., stationed in Camp Pendleton, California. They are currently out fighting for our country in Afghanistan, where they have been since May, 2010. He was point man on a foot patrol on the morning of October 25th, 2010 when he triggered an IED causing him to lose both his legs and ultimately his left arm.
On October 29th, Todd was stable enough to be transported back to the states where he was taken to Bethesda, Maryland. Todd spent nearly four weeks at the National Naval Medical Center recovering from many surgeries and attempting to regain his strength. On November 18, 2010 he became mobile for the first time since his injury as he finally gained enough strength to maneuver himself in and out of his new wheelchair.
His journey towards recovery continued on November 27, 2010 when he was discharged from the NNMC and transported to his next destination. The Walter Reed Army Medical Center will serve as Todd’s home for the next several months as he begins his process of adapting to his new life as a triple amputee. While Todd may have lost physically, he is optimistic and hopeful for the future. Rehabilitation will be his focus as he learns to rely on himself and hopefully adapt to prosthetics in the future.
Cpl Kyle Thompson was also hit by the same explosion. Please keep him and his family in your prayers as you pray for Todd and visit his CaringBridge page to offer support.
