Art Schultz Near to His Release from Valley Forge General Hospital in 1949, Approximately 35 Surgeries Later

After a shell-hit, Art lost an arm, much of his face and nose, an eye, and his sight. His 4-year recovery at Valley Forge was long and painful, but once released he was able to get around on his own and hold down employment. This is how he would have appeared near the end of his long stay at Valley Forge.
