SAN ANTONIO, TX - AUGUST 07: U.S. Army Spc. Matthew Spang, 26, wipes out while flowboarding on a wave machine at the Center for the Intrepid rehabilitation center at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), on August 7, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas. The wave therapy is designed to improve balance, coordination and strength for injured soldiers, most of whom have lost limbs in combat. Spang, from Rapids Wisconsin, lost both legs in Afghanistan in December, 2011 when his vehicle ran over an IED. BAMC comprises the Center for the Intrepid, the San Antonio Military Medical Center, the largest inpatient medical facility in the Department of Defense, and several outlying clinics. The hospital is home to the DOD?s only burn center and Level 1 trauma center in the United States. Thousands of U.S. military war wounded, most suffering from amputations, burns and functional limb loss in Afghanistan and previously in Iraq, spend months, if not years, in outpatient care at the center.
