I'm back to picking on CPT Chuck, but via Barbette, I've learned a bit more about the Ziegenfuss family. Seems service runs deep in their psyche.
For what it's worth, CPT Chuck's wife, the indomitable Carren, was also on her way to becoming an Army officer when a repeated back injury sidelined her. If I read things right, she fought through the first injury, determined to succeed, and it was only when she reinjured her back that she was forced to withdraw. So kudos to Carren for determination to serve her country, and for standing by one of our heroes.
