The next week and a half, Marine Sergeant Jonathon Blank can sleep in his own bed in his own home in Augusta.
"It feels great to take a break now and then just to get back home and get back to your friends and family and see everybody," he said.
"I'm working on my left side, hopping around on my short stubby prosthetic. I also have my right socket that goes on my right side. I'm just wearing it until, well, I'm just wearing it to build tolerance so that I can put a leg into it."
He says he still has at least a year and a half left to in rehabilitation and before he can come home permanently. He has a goal that he wants to reach.
"I'd like to run," he says. "With the help of certain prosthetics, I'd be able to run. I'd like that a lot."
