Gary Sinise Tells the Story of Quadruple Amputee John Peck

Gary Sinise Tells the Story of Quadruple Amputee John Peck

On Sunday night’s PBS telecast of the annual National Memorial Day concert from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, actor Gary Sinise recognized the struggles of Marine Sgt. John Peck, who had suffered injuries from two IED explosions, one in Iraq then another in Afghanistan.

Peck had sustained a head injury from the IED in Iraq, but had rallied to recover and return to service. However, the injuries he would sustain from the IED in Afghanistan in May 2010 would be much more difficult to recover from. It took Peck two months to recover from a medically induced coma, in which he had his arms and legs amputated.

Sinise told his story of the struggles since that return and the obstacles Peck had to overcome to try to get his life back to some degree of normalcy.
