While serving on an assignment in Afghanistan on October 23, 2010, Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez landed on a buried bomb after slipping down an embankment and lost both of his legs and his right arm in an explosion.
On the way to the hospital, he prayed that "if it was God's will, then take me now." He was at peace with losing his life in that moment. But it was not his time to die.
