I enjoyed this short story. Almost immedeatly as I started to read, I felt it was like watching the start of a movie the injured soldier and then a flashback to the explosion. So in the end we have a hero who has lost both his legs. Maybe it could have been developed from there continuing in the life of a disabled soldier. How did he feel about the society he lived in? Did politicians offer their gratitude? Did anybody care? How does he live from day to day? He could have ended up a bitter character or a brave one who found hope in artificial limbs and was admired for his spirit.
