USD Magazine: Coming Home
Tuesday, June 12, 2012
USD Magazine -- The documentary, “Coming Home: The True Story of an EOD Technician,” is not a one-man story. It is not just about that day in July 2009 when Marine Jesse Cottle stepped on a pressure plate while on foot patrol in Afghanistan. It is about the first moments, weeks and months after he lost both his legs to an improvised explosive device. It is also about his recovery and success.
But Cottle, now 27 years old, is quick to point out that the film mirrors the stories of many wounded veterans returning home from war: “I hope that it does raise awareness so everyone can see the big picture, what people in the military go through, not just Jesse Cottle.” (Full Story)
Jesse Cottle is a biology major with plans to graduate in 2014.
