Centro di Riabilitazione Super Tecnologica 'per l'Intrepido'

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) -- The Army opened a $50 million high-tech rehabilitation center Monday that is designed to serve the growing number of soldiers who return from war as amputees or with severe burns.

Of the roughly 20,000 soldiers injured since the start of the Iraq war, more than 500 have lost a limb -- many of them in roadside bombings.

The Center for the Intrepid, a privately funded facility, includes a rock-climbing wall, a wave pool and a virtual reality computer system.
