Love helps a veteran overcome war scars

CBS News reports:

It was ten years ago this month that U.S. combat forces invaded Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein. For many Americans, the war is fading into history. But not for those who fought it, including Marine Cpl. Tony Porta. His story is about tragedy and triumph.

Tony Porta was a 20-year-old Marine running convoys in Iraq in 2007, when his ordeal by fire began.

"I saw my body just burned," he recalled. "I saw my skin melting. It was like a hot candle."
