Fanatical Vietnam Vet Gets Prosthetic Eye With Seahawks Logo.

Bill VandenBush is a decorated Vietnam vet who lost his right eye in combat. He’s also a hard-core Seattle Seahawks fan. So for his 10th wedding anniversary late last month, his wife got him a new prosthetic eye–with a Seahawks logo where the false pupil normally is. He says he plans to sport the fake eyeball at “every gathering with Seahawks’ fans present,” and says of his wartime injuries,  “I believe that even though I have been totally disabled, I try to have a good time with it…You have to play the cards you’re dealt. I volunteered to go to Vietnam, this is what happened, I have to live with it. I could be bitter and angry, or I can just have a good time with it.
