Captain Marlene Krpata was a leg limb salvage after suffering a mortar attack while serving in Iraq. In 2011, she decided to amputate her leg below the knee. Since her amputation she has been back playing softball and running around with her nieces and nephew. Swimming in the ocean has had a calming effect on Marlene since she returned to the states. Now, she is excited about her scuba certification and becoming a Dive Pirate.
