Alumnus of Sacred Heart in Robbinsdale tells students about tour in Afghanistan, loss of his legs
At a recent visit to Sacred Heart Catholic School, Army Specialist Marco Solt wasn’t shy about showing an assembly of students there his new legs.
“I’ve had a lot of different legs,” he said with a chuckle before rolling up his pant leg.
“If anybody is a Wild fan …” he said, revealing a left prosthesis with a Minnesota Wild logo. “Or a Vikings fan …” he continued, showing a right prosthesis with a Vikings logo as students and staff laughed and applauded.
An alumnus of the Robbinsdale K-8 school, Solt told students on Nov. 11 – Veteran’s Day – about his recovery from the May 1, 2012, improvised explosive device blast that took his legs.
