Details: Army helicopter pilot Jim Meade was left seriously injured in a helicopter accident while fighting in Vietnam in 1967. He received a traumatic brain injury that left him unable to walk, talk, eat, or do any basic functions. Then, an army physical therapist named Lt. Karen Stephens started working with him; she started by teaching how to crawl. After that, she taught him how to walk again and then taught him how to eat as well. Lt. Stephens helped him recover physically and emotionally. One year later, she left the army and Jim returned to his family who helped him through the rest of his recovery process.
