Double Amputee Marine Becomes A Cop And Makes History

Marine veteran, double amputee Matias Ferriera makes history as he becomes a police officer in Suffolk County, New York.

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.

Big time.

Steve Hartman of CBS News tells the story so well.
