Implant info.

I FORWARDED the March Soldiers Online article "Doctors Use Implant on OEF Soldier" to my father, who is retired Air Force and a successful cochlear implantee--he's not quite to the 80-percent level, but is considerably improved from before the procedure. He hopes that a second implant will be provided to SPC Wiggins in order to help him regain the binaural ability to hear directionally.

Our wounded and returning Soldiers deserve no less than the maximum possible assistance in returning to a near normal life. I am gratified that this is being done.
