Airman Gives of Himself for Son

August 2, 2010

In this heart-warming Air Force story from New Haven, Conn., a father's ability to give up 20 percent of his liver saved the life of a 2-year-old boy. Father and son are recuperating and going home, after a three-month stay together in a Ronald McDonald House.

Senior Airman Mario Webb, a ground radio maintainer from the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron, acted as a living donor to give his son, Genghis, a liver transplant in April.
