Cario- He had been stationed in Mosul, Iraq for three months. Like any other day, December 21, Sgt. Nick Sellers went to the chow hall to eat, but the twenty first was unlike any other day. Sellers was just 50 meters from where the bomb went off pinning him to a table.
"I couldn't feel my legs, and I couldn't move, and I knew how to do self aid on my self. I just tried to wiggle my toes and make sure I wasn't paralyzed or something like that," said Sellers.
Members of his division rushed to his side.
"I put my hand underneath my back and brought it up and there was blood everywhere. Sgt. Sanders, they called for a medic, put me on a table, brought me out to where the medics were to a collection point and put me in a Humvee," said Sellers.
One injection later, Sellers woke up five days later in Texas. He says, initially he didn't realize how badly he was hurt.
"I had shrapnel from whatever the guy had strapped to him. It went through my back, chipped my spine, it bruised everything in me," said Sellers That shrapnel also hit part of his heart and pancreas before coming through his chest.
"On the flight to Germany, I went back and forth in and out from critical, like verge of death, came back from that, got to Germany stabilized again, then was shipped to Texas," said Sellers.
His mother knew what had happened when the phone rang that morning.
"We got a phone call about 1:45 that morning, and when the phone rang I knew what it was. A man with casualty was telling me who he was, and all I could ask him was, is he alive, is he alive," said Brenda Sellers, Nick's mother.
Seller went through countless surgeries. His wounds are healing, the cut on his chest is now only 15 centimeters long and 3 centimeters wide.
"I have a lot of support through friends. My friends in Iraq call me all the time, I'm on everyone's prayer list, and I have a really good, close communication with God," said Nick Sellers.
He plans on going back to Iraq, if he can.
"I've been with the 25th i.d. for my whole time in the army, it's almost been four years. They're like a family, I mean, I've been with a certain group of guys forever," said Sellers.
"Over the course of the last three months, he has amazed me. I've always been proud of him, but he gives you a special kind of pride, with the way he looks at it. Now the fact that he's going back, doesn't sit too well with me," said Brenda Sellers.
Sgt. Nick Sellers was awarded a Purple Heart for his bravery. He says, his heart is with the troops that remain in Iraq.
