Inspiring Person #15

Tammy Duckworth lost the lower part of both legs from injuries sustained on November 12, 2004, when the Black Hawk helicopter she was co-piloting was hit by a rocket propelled grenade. The explosion almost completely destroyed her right arm, breaking it in three places and tearing tissue from the back side of it. In 2008 and 2009, she completed the Chicago Marathon. Her time in 2008 was 2:26.
