BAUMHOLDER, Germany — Staff Sgt. Rico Rawls still walks with a limp from the injury he suffered after a close encounter with a roadside bomb during his 2003 deployment to Iraq. Rawls completed that tour with the Baumholder-based 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry and then completed another tour with a Fort Riley, Kan., unit before getting reassigned to Baumholder. “I just toughed it out as a Soldier,” said Rawls of his multiple deployments. But with the injury to his right leg still plaguing him, another tour in Iraq just wasn’t possible. Nor is his ability to remain a Soldier, Rawls said.
