Double Amputee Marine Becomes A Cop And Makes History
So much of Matias Ferreira’s life has not gone to plan. He never planned on losing both his legs and becoming a double-amputee while serving with the US Marines in Afghanistan.
Once he started healing, Ferriera is the kind of man who was determined to come up with a new dream.
Leave it to him to come up with a goal no one had accomplished before.
He wanted to become a police officer.
Friday, that dream came true.
Steve Hartman of CBS News tells the story so well.
