On his return home five months after his accident, the triple amputee was treated like a hero by his family and hundreds of well-wishers.
He said ‘I don’t know what to say right now.Thank you so much. It’s nice to be home. I love y’all.’
At Dallas Park, Love even joked about his injury. He said: ‘I was up front with the minesweepers searching for explosives and I found them. I guess that’s the easiest way to put it.
‘I’m still the same man.I was a boy when I left, but now I’m man. I haven’t lost anything in my eyes.’
Since the incident, Love has been recovering at the National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He’s been in outpatient rehabilitation and helped by his brother Brandon.
