The father of the Juneau Marine who was injured in Afghanistan last month says his son has made incredible strides toward recovery, and his condition continues to improve.
“He’s made tremendous progress,” Tim Ryan, father of Staff Sgt. Thomas Howard McRae, told the Empire in a phone interview Saturday.
McRae, 29, completed the last of his scheduled surgeries this past week at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
On Tuesday, doctors operated on the back of his right eye socket, which was severely damaged in the roadside blast.
