When the family arrived, the soldiers carried Farah from her car to the wheelchair, Pelkey said. Her first trips in the new chair were pretty fast. Her soldier friends took turns wheeling her around the lot.
"Some guys were going around speeding - and she loves it," Pelkey said. "She smiles and you can see when she tries to look at you."
Farah gets out a lot more these days. "Her family members and sisters are tremendous with her," Pelkey said. "They can take her outside now and around the compound."
