Anthony Makin

For every scum-sucking low-life (see yesterday’s entry) I think it’s important to acknowledge that there is someone else who is a shining example.

Anthony Makin is just one such chap. Anthony is a Lance Bombardier in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery. His vehicle was blown up while serving in Afghanistan 2 years ago. Driver Lance Bombardier James Dwyer, 22 was killed in the explosion while Anthony’s foot was blown off among other injuries. His leg was later amputated below the knee & he has since been fitted with a prosthetic leg.

Miraculously, Lance Bombardier Makin is back with his unit & now serving in Helmand Province back in Afghanistan. Further, his brother was so influenced by Makin’s experiences that he himself joined up with the same unit & is also serving in Afghanistan, alongside his older brother.

We often concentrate in the worst of society without giving space for the best, I guess that’s just the way of the world. So it’s nice to big someone up for a change.

Well done that man, I take my hat off to you!
