SFC Josh Olson, a U.S. Army Paralympic marksman, prosthetic leg supports him in preparation to shoot his rifle at Wagner Range, in Ft. Benning, Ga., Thursday, May 31, 2012. Olson sustained heavy damage to his leg during an ambush attack in Iraq in 2003, in which his right leg had to be amputated. He's currently a apart of the wounded warrior program and the first active duty soldier to qualify for a Paralympics in the field of mixed 50 meter rifle and mixed 10 meter air rifle. (Andrew S.
