■Veterans express gratitude for Operation Mend

Dr. Timothy Miller, a veteran and the head of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, leads Operation Mend, which provides free reconstructive surgeries for wounded troops. "I'm at a loss for words," said Marine Staff Sgt. Octavio Sanchez, whose nose, lips and cheeks were reconstructed after being burned by a roadside bomb. "How do you talk about somebody who has done so much for us and has taken his time, and given back to us and given us a little peace of mind," Sanchez said of Miller. KOLD-TV (Tucson, Ariz.) (7/1)
