Star-Tribune feature details one injured soldier’s story

America is still at war, and we do not often get to see how it plays out in the lives of our neighbors. On Sunday, the Casper Star-Tribune featured the story of Colton Sasser; “Casper Army specialist fights to put his body back together,” by Kristy Gray and photos by Dan Cepeda. Colton was nearly killed in an April 15 attack in Afghanistan, and his road to recovery should be an inspiration to all. Sasser’s sacrifice and dedication to this nation, and his courageous determination to recover, should not be forgotten. Kudos to Kristy, Dan and the Star-Tribune for telling this story.
