Amputee actors help soldiers prepare for war
A A A (resize font)
San Diego (CNN) - When a car slammed into their motorcycle, June and Ted DiStefano knew the horrific accident would change their lives forever. They didn't realize it would give them the power to help others.

Both were severely injured in the hit-and-run accident. June was kept in an induced coma for a month as doctors tried to save her left leg. In the end, they had to amputate it. Ted also lost his left leg.

Today, 15 years later, the DiStefanos are actors in a hostile environment training course, using their physical injury to help create a shocking, realistic simulation of a war zone for troops.

"We call it hyper-realistic," said Kit Lavell, a Vietnam veteran who runs Strategic Operations, or STOPS, in San Diego -- a movie set turned training ground for thousands of U.S. servicemen and women.

Amputee uses mind-controlled 'bionic leg'
