Once Marine Gunnery Sgt. Michael Burghardt realized he could wiggle his toes and fingers, he had one message for the insurgents who wounded him - defiance.

Burghardt, of Huntington Beach, Calif., disarmed two bombs that were found - quick action that probably saved the lives of several Nebraska soldiers. But he couldn't get to a third.
