Flesh Eaters

Left with nearly a foot-long scar along his shinbone, Staff Sgt. Stephen Jones knows he was lucky to survive a flesh-eating bacteria in his leg. Maj. (Dr.) Crystine Lee checks the status of Jones' leg as he recovers in the hospital after surgery. Jones says his pre-deployment training played a major role in his surviving the deadly bacterial infection. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Cassandra Locke)
