Magee Rehab patient Sal Corma was given bad news. His son, 1st Lt. Salvatore Corma was killed serving his country in Afghanistan. Then, due to his medical condition, he was told he wouldn't be able to go to Dover Air Base to claim his son's remains.

But Magee's staff found a way to make it possible and Mr. Corma was in Dover when the military transport arrived.

So was his therapist, Alex Kobb.

The story ran in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Memorial Day, May 31, 2010.
