Right before going into emergency surgery ...

Right before going into emergency surgery in Iraq in 2004, Statesville resident Dale Beatty, left, found a face from home - nurse anesthetist Bill Giles of Huntersville.
...
Bill Giles and Dale Beatty last met three years ago in an operating room in Mosul, Iraq, after an explosion tore through Beatty's armored Humvee.
...
Giles' face was the last face that Beatty, an Army National Guardsmen, saw before life-saving surgery.And it was a face from home.
Beatty was an inspiration among the hundreds of patients that Giles, a nurse anesthetist with the Army Reserve, helped in Iraq.
...
Even with part of his leg missing, the other one mangled and burns on his face and on one eye, Beatty was calm, Giles remembered.
...
"North Carolina," Beatty said.
...
"Me too," Beatty replied, adding that he grew up in Statesville.
...
Beatty was taken to Germany for further treatment after his emergency surgery, and always wanted to talk to Giles again.
...
Giles, who lives in Huntersville and works at CMC-University, wondered how Beatty was.
...
Giles told him about Beatty, and Brower arranged the reunion.
...
Beatty walked through the door on two prosthetics.
...
As they reminisced, Beatty said he was seated in the passenger seat of the Humvee when an anti-tank mine went off under him.Fire and heat seared his face as it flashed through the vehicle.But everyone survived.
A soldier in a vehicle ahead of his came to his aid, Beatty said.
"I kept asking him where all my guys were because I didn't see them.Everyone got thrown out of the vehicle," he said."I didn't want to scare him by screaming."
So Beatty, 26 at the time, tried to stay calm.
...
Beatty eventually went to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he remained for about a year recovering from his injuries.He was featured in a front-page Observer article on Jan. 18, 2005.
Giles said he saw a photo of Beatty with President Bush and first lady Laura Bush in the Army Times, and was proud he had helped him survive.
Beatty said the hardest thing has been knowing how much stress his wounds caused his family because he couldn't do anything about it.
Beatty was about 6 feet 2 inches tall before the blast, and now stands about 5 feet 11.He said he can adjust his prosthetics to his original height when he's ready, but just hasn't done it yet.
He's been busy, working hard just to learn to walk and do many of the things he loved before being wounded, he said.He is playing the drums again in his band, Southern Fried Musician's Association.In the fall, he rode his bicycle 26.2 miles in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C.
Beatty is working again as a civilian contractor for the N.C. National Guard, and still living in Statesville.He's also director of community and military affairs for a nonprofit group, Project American Spirit, which plans to help build homes for wounded veterans starting this year.
...
"The thing I remember about Dale was how calm he was, how devastating his injuries were and how he's taken it in stride in his life.He's just an inspirational guy."

Dale Beatty, a Purple Heart ...
www.fisherhouse.org, 28 May 2013 [cached]
Dale Beatty, a Purple Heart recipient and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, tossed the ceremonial first pitch. Beatty was deployed to Iraq in 2004, and on Nov. 15, 2004, his vehicle hit a land mine and as a result, Beatty became a double-amputee below the knees.
Beatty was at the Coliseum also to help raise attention for the Fisher House Foundation, whose homes allow soldiers and their families to stay at no cost while they are receiving medical treatment. Beatty and his family stayed at a Fisher House, and he's now a trustee of the organization.
"It was an irreplaceable asset to have a home away from home," Beatty said. "It was a support system for my family and for all the families there."
The Fisher House Foundation has 60 homes around the world, including one in Palo Alto and one at Travis Air Force Base in Solano County, where a second is under construction.
Beatty said he played baseball as a youngster, just like his son does now, for their hometown youth league in Statesville, N.C. That team's colors? Green and gold, just like the A's. But, Beatty said, "I'm neutral."
Gala to raise funds for homes away from home for family of wounded military | Fisher House Foundation
www.fisherhouse.org, 22 June 2012 [cached]
Dale I. Beatty vividly remembers his first glimpse of a Fisher House, a home away from home for wounded troops and their families.
...
Beatty is now a trustee for the Fisher House Foundation, a national network of 57 facilities across the nation that offer free housing to families of wounded troops undergoing treatment.
...
Beatty had an invitation, but a previous commitment prevents him from attending, he said. He gives the effort a resounding endorsement.
"These homes are a tremendous benefit to these soldiers and their families," Beatty said. "Just think of the money saved on hotel bills and the idea that families can stay indefinitely."
Fisher House allowed Beatty's family to be by his side during his yearlong recovery, and except for a few brief stints in the hospital, he was able to stay at the home with them.
"To have my family close by was good medicine," said Beatty, now a resident of Statesville, N.C. "I could look at my boys and see that I had people depending on me, whether I had legs or not.
