The article reports on Sergeant Robert Bartlett, who lost half his face in an attack while stationed in Iraq in 2005. After numerous surgeries over three and a half years, he learned to come to terms with his disfigurement, and he explains the pain and humiliation he experienced. He now speaks out to other soldiers, helping them deal with their own disfigurement and loss, and in November 2009 got an American Society of Plastic Surgeons' Patients of Courage: Triumph Over Adversity Award.
