About CPL Tyler Huffman
In the process of defending and protecting us, on December 3, 2010 Tyler suffered injuries from two shots into his chest that left him paralyzed. Sketch artist Michael Fay recounts Tyler’s account of that fateful day. Fay wrote, “He remember everything. Everything. First hit by two shots, felt like two punches to the chest. Second, in slow motion, his body kicks backwards. Immediately upon hitting the ground he notices this feet are flopping open. He can’t feel or move his legs.” But his love of country and thoughts on being an American would inspire anyone. Tyler (age 23) has a wife, Melissa and a 2 1/2 year old son, Matthew.
