Wounded Veteran/Triple Amp tandem Can't Post

This is a Recon brother, Cpl. Todd Love of 1st Reconnaissance Bn. He lost both legs and an arm to an IED in Afghanistan. This is a video of him with team X-treme who raises money for wounded warriors. In this video you will see him scuba diving, surfing, and scuba diving. Hes done more tandems and is working on figuring out a way to do AFF. He has also been on the show gator boys, wrestling an aligator, and drove in a demolition derby. Now that is determination.

Gawain here on DZ was doing demos with a prosthetic leg. I bet he would have some insight on it. Of course it's different for a 2 leg, but it might be useful info.

Don't see why he couldn't do AFF if he can make a tandem. Some tunnel time to figure out his balance in the air and a bucket harness, with some padding built in for landing, he should be good to go. He's a recon Marine, there's nothing he can't handle.

Al Hodgson in the UK could also be of help - he lost both legs in Northern Ireland and is now one of the top freefly competitors / organisers / coaches in the UK. Not sure about his contact details but should be easy enough to track down through http://www.bpa.org.uk.

Some info on him here (or just stick his name into Google):
