New legs, new goals for Olympia soldier

In his earliest memory, Sgt. Luke Cifka recalls stumbling in front of his dad as a toddler figuring out how to put one foot in front of the other. The memory came back to him this fall when he began learning to walk again. This time, he’s recovering from a blast in Afghanistan that claimed his legs above the knees. Last month, Cifka, 26, took his first steps with prosthetic limbs, walking without toes, calves or knees.
