Sergeant Lorne Ford was one of eight soldiers injured in April when a US F-16 fighter accidentally dropped a bomb on some Canadian soldiers during a training exercise near Kandahar. Ford suffered extensive injuries to his right eye and leg. Four other Canadian soldiers -- members of the Third Battalion, Prince Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, were killed. Ford said he had little time to react when the bomb fell.
