Master Sergeant William “Spanky” Gibson is a retired United States Marine, who served for 22 years in multiple theaters.  On May 16th, 2006, while on a foot patrol in Iraq, then-Gunnery Sergeant Gibson was shot through the left knee during a fire fight. His wounds required his left leg to be amputated just above the knee.  He re-deployed to Iraq in January 2008, making GySgt Gibson the first above the knee amputee to return to a ground combat area of operation.
