US Senator Tammy Duckworth lost both of her legs when the Army helicopter she was piloting was shot down in Iraq. To understand why she chose to serve, you need to understand a bit about her upbringing. In her new memoir called “Every Day is a Gift,” Senator Duckworth describes growing up in South Asia. She didn’t even visit the United States until she was 12 years old. It blew her away. (Originally aired: April 26th, 2021)
