Good Samaritan Helps Wounded Soldier

Good Samaritan Helps Wounded Soldier

A roadside bombing in Afghanistan last month left Specialist Devon Pitz with serious injuries. His stepmother Vikki, who recently visited him at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C., says he is making progress.

"He had made four steps while I was there," said Vikki Pitz. "They've got him a special wheel-chair and use the little remote and he can wheel himself around."
