WOUNDED VETERAN-STORM HELP
Double-amputee Marine helps stranded motorists during Ohio snow storm
Reported by: Associated Press

A Marine veteran who lost both his legs in Afghanistan is again being called a hero — this time for helping stuck motorists out during a snow storm.
Draughn says he has been well-treated in the Fairborn community and feels compelled to help. The group Homes for Our Troops built his family's house.
He received prosthetic legs after losing his to a roadside bomb explosion four years ago.
He doesn't see his actions Sunday as heroic, but a couple he assisted disagreed. Mildred Ledbetter was moved to tears by his help.
