Wounded soldier in rehabilitation


From staff reports

— A month ago, U.S. Army Spc. Anthony Walton fell backward on the driveway of his mother’s home, causing him to be flown to Indianapolis by helicopter, where he was put in a medically induced coma. On Dec. 4, he underwent surgery to remove part of his skull to reduce swelling of his brain. Since then, Walton has been making a remarkable recovery. Last Friday, he was moved to the VA Hospital in Indianapolis where he is undergoing rehabilitation. Doctors anticipate Walton will be able to go home soon.
