She’s a badass! As a helicopter pilot, an RPG hit her cockpit and blew off her leg. As she went in and out of consciousness, her co pilot said she kept jumping back into action, trying to pilot the helicopter, as if her leg was still there. When they crashed, she immediately took out her pistol and began firing on the enemy combatants.
I can’t remember all the details, and my description doesn’t do it justice. David Axelrod had an interview with her, in which she described the event, on his podcast years ago, highly recommend looking it up.
She’s an amazing Senator as well.
