Being in the middle of a war means there is a risk of being seriously injured or getting killed. This intense experience changes your life forever.

Some veterans come back feeling well while some others live for a long time with mental and physical wounds.

Simon Brown served in the British army for 13 years. However, his life turned upside down the day he was hit by an enemy sniper.

That day, Simon had managed to save 6 of his colleagues after his vehicle had broken down. As he successfully finished his mission, Simon was shot by a sniper in the face. A bullet that left him partially blind and requiring 25 surgeries.

Simon’s colleagues rushed him to emergency treatment, where he was given a lifesaving tracheotomy to let him breathe. After that, he was airlifted to a hospital.

The hero soldier spent 17 days in a coma. When he woke up, the doctors told him that his face was permanently disfigured by the gunshot.

Simon was forced to undergone dozens of reconstructive operations and countless hours of surgery, according to Daily Mail.

His cheekbones and nose were reconstructed using titanium, his jaw broken and remoulded and a prosthetic eye fitted.

Needless to say, Simon went through an incredibly tough period, both physically and mentally.

His new face left him void of all former confidence. But that was until he met five-year-old Temperance Pattinson…

This wonderful little girl has always been fascinated by war heroes. For example, Temperance supports veterans by participating in events like charity mini-triathlons.

In this heartwarming clip below, Temperance’s lifelong dream comes true: She finally gets the chance to meet a real-life soldier as part of Help for Heroes’ Facing It Together campaign.

Simon went into the meeting completely unsure of how the little girl would react to his severe scars.

But it only took just a few seconds before I understood why the clip of their special meeting is spreading like a wildfire…

Please share to spread awareness of how important it is to thank our veterans for all that they sacrifice to keep us safe.
