Some of us would have heard the stories of soldiers putting their life on the line in the Middle East while fighting in the war. Here are 10 photos of veterans who managed to return home from war. Hancock is pictured here with one of his two children. He was injured in Iraq when a roadside bomb pierced the armor of a tank that he was driving, and broke the interior. He had a short time to live and died in due to complications from his injuries.
