Today’s Honoree is Captain Lewis Larkin O’Hern III

Captain Lewis Larkin O’Hern III is a West Point 2008 graduate and deployed with the 101st Airborne out of Ft. Campbell, Kentucky in June of 2010. Larkin spent 7 months serving as an infantry platoon leader in Kandahar, Afghanistan before being critically wounded by an IED while on patrol on December 30th, 2010. Larkin lost both of his legs and his right hand in the blast. Thanks to the talent of many surgeons, therapists, and prosthetists, his own hard work, and the healing power of God, Larkin was able to stand and welcome each soldier in his platoon home on May 27, 2011.

Today, he walks with one cane, and hopes to return to active duty and continue to serve his country.

A message from the Family:

Thank you for your interest in our story, and your prayers on our behalf.  We can not thank our friends, family, and the San Antonio community enough for the support we have received each step of the way, and we wouldn’t be where are without you.
