Sgt. 1st Class James Joslin, (left) and Sgt. 1st Class Joshua Ferguson both served in the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division based at Fort Richardson, Alaska. They were deployed to Iraq in 2007, where Ferguson sustained severe wounds and his left leg had to be amputated, and his right leg sustained severe nerve damage. He has learned to walk again with an artificial limb, and he struggled with dark thoughts of depression and suicide, but he has managed to battle back with the help of his wife, and battle buddy, Joslin.
