    DiGioia, Christopher. E-mail interview. 2 May 2010. Though Mr. DiGioia is a student attending college to work and practice in the field of prosthetics, He was able to give me a lot of information on the most current things in the field, and he was able to give me good information on the technology that works inside the simple, and higher tech artificial limbs.
    Kistenberg, Rob. Telephone interview. 4 May 2010. Mr. Kistenberg was kind enough to conduct an interview over the phone, and give me a glimpse at the life of a non-military prosthesis doctor. He gave me a considerable amount of information that ended up in my project. Mr. Kistenberg is currently a Professor at Georgia Tech in their Prosthetics department. His education includes: University of Houston Health Science Center, Master of Public Health. University of California, Los Angeles, California, Long Term Certificate Program in Prosthetics, 1990. University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Bachelor of Arts, Biology, 1989.
    Robert S. Kistenberg, M.P.H., C.P., L.P., F.A.A.O.P.
  • 17. “60 minutes: revolutionizing prosthetics.” 60 Minutes. CBS. 12 Apr. 2009. Television. This episode of 60-minutes gave me the perspective of an amputee, and what he has to live with. It gave me insight on the daily struggles that he must go through, and the pain that he has endured. The fact that he subconsciously became emotionally attached to the arm (calling it “My arm”) is simply astounding.
    TARTC. “TARTC Prosthetics.” TARTC.org. U.S. Army, Apr. 2010. Web. Apr. 2010. <http://www.tatrc.org/‌index.php?p=ports/‌prosthetics/‌home>. This is the website for the organization that Mr. Turner works for. It gave me success stories as well as upcoming projects related to prosthetics.
    Turner, Troy. E-mail interview. Apr. 2010. Troy gave me an incredibly detailed response to my interview questions, and provided me with an utter goldmine of usable information from the inside world of the military and prosthesis. Mr. Turner is a MBA, and the Research Portfolio Manager for the Dept. of Defense for prosthetics, orthotics, rehab, and other areas of research.
    Wood, Trish. What Was Asked of Us. New York: Little, Brown, and Company, 2006. Print. Though there is not a whole lot of information on prosthetics, it does however give insight on the feelings and emotions of a soldier in the war. It shows the pain and the changes they must make.
    Thanks to Mrs. Hamilton, and Mrs. Lester for all the help and support
    Thanks to Troy Turner, Rob Kistenberg, and Christopher DiGioia for the information
