    Sgt. Ricardo Ramirez, a combat replacement for 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, observes an area through his rifle optics while on patrol in Sangin, Afghanistan, Aug. 7. In February of 2006, Ramirez was wounded in action while serving in Iraq with 3rd Bn., 5th Marines and two years later became the first hand-amputee to re-enlist in the Marines Corps. “Handicap and amputee Marines will see that this is only a limitation if they make it a limitation," said Ramirez.
